Who Is Simon Warwick?
Lord Charlton, that wealthy old geezer, has shuffled off this mortal coil, leaving all his dosh to his nephew, Simon. Problem is, nobody has actually seen Simon since he was a baby, adopted by Americans after his parents were killed in an air raid. And with all that lovely lolly at stake, it is perhaps not surprising that more than one “Simon Warwick” turns up to claim the cash. Enter Henry Tibbett, charged with sorting the real Simon from the false—a task made no easier when one of the “Simons” turns up dead. The question of whodunnit is relatively easy to solve, but the identity of the real Simon rests on a plot twist that even the canniest mystery fan is unlikely to see coming.
