This has one of the higher body counts, and one of the more convoluted plots. We've got the missing heir, operating under an assumed name, convicted of a murder he didn't commit. We've got the pair of lovers who each think the other committed the murder, screwing things up royally by trying to protect each other (a trick Stout uses frequently).
