Inspector Drake and his sidekick Sergeant Plod return in their most perplexing case yet. A maid discovers the corpse of wealthy oil tycoon John Johnson with a sword sticking out of his back.

Inspector Drake attempts to solve the murder whilst also avoiding his own, as Plod has had a premonition that Drake has only a matter of hours to live!
