Detective Inspector Montague Pluke's moment of joy at finding the Lost Giant's Horse Trough of Trippingdale is almost ruined when he sees, face down in the great trough's shallow waters, a dead man. The body is that of the heir to the Trippingdale estate. He was a good man with no enemies so why would anyone want to kill him? And why has he, like several other people in the village, received a single pressed snowdrop, the sign of death.
