Inspector Cockrill and Inspector Charlesworth adopt the case, rivals in a race to answer the impossible question: how could it have been done?

First published in 1948, Brand’s masterpiece of the impossible crime subgenre is a fiendishly complex yet riveting mystery, featuring nuanced characters, Shakespearean plotting, dumbfounding acts of misdirection and a truly thrilling denouement.
