Published Date: 1960

The body of a drunken furniture dealer found drowned in a canal and that of a defaulting cashier found shot in the vault of a London bank, seemed to have no connection whatever and the coroners at the respective inquests found verdicts of accidental death and suicide in keeping with the circumstances of each.

The information supplied by a dying teddy-boy to a priest, however, made further investigations necessary and Superintendent Littlejohn of Scotland Yard, found himself involved in a case, which alternated between the oily waters of a canal near Bekhampstead and the urbane precincts of a bank I Moorgate. The kindly Superintendent learned quite a lot about inland navigation and finance before he solved the case.
