The book introduces us to Major Heathcliff Lennox who is an ex-World War I pilot who was named after the character from Wuthering Heights by his romantic mother.

He’ll work with his uncle, Lord Melrose, to try and uncover the mystery as more murders begin to pile up.

Another great book in the series is called Death in Damascus. This story sees a damsel in distress in the distant city of Damascus and Lennox going to help.
