Extortion is the name of the game. In this first story of the Inspector West series, the Scotland Yard officer has to get to the bottom of a blackmail bid against the Dreem cigarette factory.
Commander George Gideon of Scotland Yard has to deal successively with news of a mass murderer, a depraved maniac, and the deaths of a family in an arson attack on an old building south of the river. This leaves little time for the crisis developing at home.
