  • When a once-brilliant man becomes more than a little eccentric and people start losing money and dying, Barnaby and Troy must try and figure out what is going on.

    Charles Edmonton has made a lot of money in his lifetime and a lot of people have believed in him and invested with him and done very well out of it too but, in reality, the present-day Charles is losing his grip on reality and Julian Shepherd, one of Edmonton's biggest investors in a new 'secret' project which nobody actually knows anything about.

    Julian Shepherd drowns in an apparent suicide and it appears that the reason was connected to his appaling finances. Barnaby and Troy must investigate this death as well as trying to figure out who is stealing expensive falcon eggs but Mrs. Edmonton is not keen on giving them access to her eccentric husband and when he dies and the 'secret invention' turns out to be nothing more than a worthless scooter, the police must figure out who had the means and the motive and whether Julian Shepherd died by his own hand or was helped on his way.
