James Tarrant’s position as an assistant chemist in a sleepy village backwater does not satisfy his craving for wealth. Merle Weir, a nurse at a local convalescent home agrees to help him in a not-quite-legal scheme, believing Tarrant will marry her. They will sell their own indigestion remedy on the back of another’s reputation. When he breaks his promise and becomes engaged to another, Merle talks of revenge. Could she really have murdered Tarrant? Inspector French investigates.
