Alan Barnes is a bit of a hit or miss writer at least for me personally. He often has some great ideas but doesn't always execute them properly. Here there are all these problems that plague many of Barnes' scripts including a lot of leaps in logic and storytelling. I had to even give this one a second listen to understand the plot and not because it was confusing, but because of the gaping holes and leaps in logic. He also writes a lot of this like it was supposed to be a Companion Chronicle as a lot of the story is told in flashbacks to prior events. Yes some of the twists are really good and clever, but Barnes is a bit over his head in aren't I so clever opening up the small plot holes.

I still really liked the story however as Jago & Litefoot are both great here and they are the only thing that keeps the story together. Jago has some great opening scenes as he has been put into debt from some theatrical issues, bringing some more great alliteration to the forefront.

Litefoot called in on an unusual case of a man who appears to have committed murder six weeks after being dead, almost certainly dooming the career of a Scottish pathologist who made the call. At the same time, Jago is incognito to avoid a particularly nasty debt collector. However, they team up to solve this mystery and also find the truth behind the Far Off Travelers' Club.

This story is very well done with a very good mystery as to what's really going on with the some Eastern European superstition thrown in. We also see the difference between the social circles Jago & Litefoot move in when Jago is able to enlist a grave robber. The obsequious secretary/butler is a nice touch and works great when he acts as an executioner. I will say that the resolution of the problem with Jago's debt problems was a tad abrupt and convenient, though that's made up by the fact that it was also a bit humorous.

A fantastic script with many unexpected twists and turns and some wonderful character moments. The opening scene in the Red Tavern is a hoot and Duncan Wisbey as Sacker is a supberb addition to the cast. The story is tense and scary, as well as funny and warm, but always subtle and inventive. My favourite from series 1, this one is absolutely perfect.
