Inhaltsangabe: Cluny is an ancient town in France better known for its past then its present, in other words, the perfect place for tourists and travelers. When a local wine grower who provides accommodations for the better sort of English tourist in his villa decides to entertain his guests with a masked ball it promises to be a pleasant diversion. But the diversion turns to tragedy when two of the attendees are found dead in a locked room, apparently as a result of a duel. But, was it really a duel fought over the wife of one of the dead men, or can their deaths be attributed to something more sinister, murder? Fortunately, Chief Inspector Pointer is attending a conference in the neighborhood and is prepared to assist the local police, but only, of course, in the role of an observer. But can even the ever astute Pointer solve . . . The Cluny Problem?
Über den Autor: The identity of the author is as much a mystery as the plots of the novels. Two dozen novels were published from 1924 to 1944 as by Archibald Fielding, A. E. Fielding, or Archibald E. Fielding, yet the only clue as to the real author is a comment by the American publishers, H.C. Kinsey Co. that A. E. Fielding was in reality a ?middle-aged English woman by the name of Dorothy Feilding whose peacetime address is Sheffield Terrace, Kensington, London, and who enjoys gardening.? Research on the part of John Herrington has uncovered a person by that name living at 2 Sheffield Terrace from 1932-1936. She appears to have moved to Islington in 1937 after which she disappears. To complicate things, some have attributed the authorship to Lady Dorothy Mary Evelyn Moore nee Feilding (1889-1935), however, a grandson of Lady Dorothy denied any family knowledge of such authorship. The archivist at Collins, the British publisher, reports that any records of A. Fielding were presumably lost during WWII. Birthdates have been given variously as 1884, 1889, and 1900. Unless new information comes to light, it would appear that the real authorship must remain a mystery.
