In this fiction, the main characters are newly wed and are enthusiastic couple named Gwenda and Giles. When they wanted to move to London to settle down, Gwenda alone moved and acquired house where she could feel some startling coincidences happened and some of the reaction by Gwenda shows that she was under miserable, queer and imbalance thought.

Miss Marple’s suggestion to leave Gwenda alone, her husband Giles decision to find about  Helen was really thrilling. This story goes on with several possible suspects and all these put Gwenda in difficult stages of her journey.
