Lord Pastern and Baggot is a classic English eccentric, given to passionate, peculiar enthusiasms. His latest? Drumming in a jazz band. His wife is not amused, and even less so when her daughter falls hard for Carlos Rivera, the band s sleazy piano player. Aside from the young woman, nobody likes Rivera very much, so there s a wealth of suspects when he is shot in during a performance. Happily, Inspector Alleyn is in the audience."
