First Paragraph

Sir Giles Lynchwood, Member of Parliament for South Worfordshire, sat in his study and lit a cigar. Outside his window tulips and primroses bloomed, a thrush pecked at the lawn and the sun shown down out of a cloudless sky. In the distance he could see the cliffs of the Cleene Gorge rising above the river.
