Along with the property, they have inherited some worthless bric-a-brac, including a collection of antique books. While rustling through a copy of The Black Arrow, Tuppence comes upon a series of apparently random underlinings. However, when she writes down the letters, they spell out a very disturbing message: Mary Jordan did t die naturally. And sixty years after their first murder, Mary Jordan's enemies are still ready to kill.
