R. M. Laurenson once again introduces his railroad attorney-sleuth, Marc Jordan, who refuses to recognise a stop light where murder is concerned.
This time the tragedy is preceded by a pre-wedding dinner and subsequent party. A few hours later, the bride-to-be, Dolly Porter, is found dead on the railroad tracks, along with Ted Arthur, the man she had jilted.
Accident? Double suicide? Murder and suicide? The police cannot decide among the three.
But a series of footprints convinces Marc that none of these three theories is correct: that it was murder and that the murderer has escaped. And as subsequent events confirm his theory, he slowly builds up his case from six bullets, a couple of strips of metal, a dog who fails to bark and a kidnapper who fails to demand ransom.
