Alfred Pratt, the shady cockney millionaire, is all smiles when he ceremonially re-opens the real tennis court on the High Cheney estate recently bought from the young Lord Cheney. But his good humour vanishes when the theft of a valuable manuscript is quickly followed by a sudden and gruesome death in the ancient tennis court. Talbot B. Talbot, the American tennis champion, now turned amateur sleuth, becomes violently involved when he tries to unravel the mystery.
