Book description
In the art deco library of Blackstone Manor, Indigo Black has a busy morning of appointments. One by one his visitors arrive, each for a different reason, each bearing a vendetta. The meetings end unpleasantly. Not long afterwards the body of Indigo Black is found spreadeagled on the library floor.
Which of the visitors returned to the library, and there, smashed in Indigo Black’s head with a candlestick? 
Colonel Jocquin Colman? Mme Sapphire Azure? Professor Mauvino Mulberry? Mrs Blanche Alabaster? The Reverend Malachi Khaki? Ms Scarletta Crimson? Dr Gray? Some other shady character?
This is the question Detective Inspector Magpie of Scotland Yard – a man with a pathological need for justice and the nose of a bloodhound for a lie – investigates, alongside sidekick, Sepia Brown.
