Join amateur sleuths Archer Reed, Ione Wallace, and Tango the Greyhound in their first murder mystery.
When Archer and Ione are invited to take part in the newest venture by an industrial tycoon at his summer home on Mantioch Island, they are ready for the challenge.
Once arriving, an investment presentation is hosted by a man named Dr. Chapman. During this time, Archer and Ione meet an odd assortment of investors. The only investor their host seems to know personally is Ernst Meier, who is formally introduced. A few hours after the presentation, Dr. Chapman is found poisoned with strychnine.
Questioning by the police reveals that once the meeting ended, people came and went at will; therefore, no one can confirm the whereabouts of the others, and everyone becomes a suspect.
In a bizarre turn of events, their host is found bludgeoned with a heavy vase. A hastily convened inquest reveals nothing except that the men were killed by person or persons unknown. Ione and Archer soon discover that the island has an international secret. More murders follow, and Archer and Ione find themselves racing against the clock to trap this cunning killer before he strikes again.
