A widow who is anxious to see her husband buried before there can be an autopsy…An invalid doctor who keeps a strange assortment of tools with his surgical instruments…An artist whose brushes and palettes have never been used…A former ship's surgeon who is unable to diagnose a simple case of scurvy…A bedridden paralytic who contracts lead poisoning from a tavern three miles away…A bank porter's wife who insists there is a ghost in her house. Set in the early days of the century, the six tales here take place in various parts of rural England-wherever the young physician-detective's assignments take him.
