When Bobby Jones goes to retrieve his wayward golf ball at the bottom of a cliff he little expects that he will find a dying man there. With his last breath the man asks ‚ "Why didn't they ask Evans?" Intrigued by this question Bobby and his vivacious friend Frankie Derwent set out to solve the mystery - putting their own lives in great danger along the way.
This light-hearted murder romp pleased the critics, with Mortimer Quick writing in the Chicago Daily Tribune, “In spite of a murder or two there is scarcely a grim moment so light hearted are all concerned.” In 1981 this novel was filmed for television and starred Francesca Annis and James Warwick who went on to play Tommy & Tuppence. It was filmed again in 2009 with the addition of Julia McKenzie as Miss Marple.
