The Singing Sands
On sick leave from Scotland Yard,
Inspector Alan Grant is planning a quiet holiday with an old school chum to
recover from overwork and mental fatigue. Traveling on the night train to
Scotland, however, Grant stumbles upon a dead man and a cryptic poem about the
stones that walk and the singing sand, which send him off on a fascinating
search into the verse's meaning and the identity of the deceased.
Grant needs just this sort of casual
inquiry to quiet his jangling nerves, despite his doctor's orders. But what
begins as a leisurely pastime eventually turns into a full-blown investigation
that leads Grant to discover not only the key to the poem but the truth about a
most diabolical murder.
