Five red herrings: Lord Peter Wimsey goes on holiday in Scotland, hoping to relax and catch some trout, but he is soon called on to catch more than fish when Campbell, an unpopular local artist, is found dead. Murder must advertise: It looks like a tragic accident when Victor Dean falls down the spiral staircase at Pym's Publicity Ltd. His replacement (Wimsey in disguise) sets out to find the truth which leads him to a drug ring operating through someone at the agency. The nine tailors: Lord Peter Wimsey, man about town and amateur sleuth, and his man Bunter, are drawn into a series of intriguing incidents after being stranded in the remote village of Fenchurch St. Paul. What is the identity of the grotesquely disfigured corpse found in the church-yard? Who murdered him and why? Perhaps the Fenchurch bells hold their own answers to the mystery?
