Read by Wanda McCaddon.
When the President of Ngombwana proposed to dispense with the usual security arrangements on an official visit to London, his old school mate Chief Superintendent Alleyn is called in to try to persuade him otherwise. Alleyn informs his mission so successfully that on the night of the Ngombwana embassy's reception the house and grounds are stiff with police. Nevertheless, an assassin does strike and Alleyn discovers a wealth of suspects in a coterie of ex-colonials residing in the very shadows of the embassy.
