Once there, they are taken to see the body of a man on the former platform. He's been beaten to death by blows on the back of his head, by what Dr Welbourne believes to have been a cricket bat.

Could the dead man be associated with the British Empire XI who are playing against English cricket teams at the world-famous Lord's cricket ground? Coburg and Lampson have a puzzling case to solve .
