Michael Pertwee is the author of the Grove Family serial, but this play shows him in different, more serious mood, for it is about a murder and its aftermath. A few years before the action begins, a pretty girl named Sally married a young flyer, Martin Raynor; he had been a fighter pilot, then joined a civil air line, and crashed in the jungle while on the routine flight in the East. For two years he was missing, and during that time Sally fell in love with a young local doctor, John Harper.
But Martin survived, and eventually returned, and not very long afterwards he died in mysterious circumstances. Sally was arrested and tried for his murder - one of the most vehement witnesses for the prosecution. being the dead man's doting mother, Emily Raynor. It was a sensational trial, with Sally refusing actively to defend herself, and simply denying the accusation; and at the end she was acquitted, though many people felt she must be guilty. Now she returns to the house where she lived with Martin, and life has to be faced anew. But what was the truth about Martin's death? Only two people living know: Sally and the old family friend, Doctor Glanville. And it is in fact the Doctor who tells the story.

Paul Tortelier was born in Paris in 1914 and began to study music at the age of six, later going to the Paris Conservatoire. At sixteen he won his first prize for cello playing, and the following year made his first appearance with an orchestra-the Lamoureux Orchestra in Paris. Since then he has appeared with most of the leading orchestras in Europe and the U.S.A.
Between tours he lives with his wife, the cellist Maude Martin, and their two children, in their villa in the South of France or in Paris where he indulges his hobbies of theatre-going, reading, painting, and skating. A composer of note, Tortelier has written cello concertos, a sonata, a suite for solo cello, and other works
