What the doctor ordered for novelist Tony Deane - in need of a spot of recuperation after having his appendix hurriedly removed - was a leisurely holiday in quiet and uneventful surroundings. A timely invitation from an artist friend with a houseboat moored on one of the East Anglian rivers seemed the ideal formula for this prescription, but when Tony climbed into the train at Liverpool Street and found himself sitting opposite a girl who was actually reading one of his own detective stories, he was all unknowingly at the beginning of an adventure every bit as exciting as any he had himself devised.
