A young couple has converted a country house into a small hotel and started a business in the hotel business, but they are struggling financially.
One night, due to a heavy snowstorm, everyone, including the four guests there, find themselves isolated and unable to leave the hotel.
Until Detective Trotter arrives, who has managed to overcome the difficulties of the storm by walking to the hotel on his skis.
Trotter comes to warn that a murderer is on the loose and heading there, having committed a murder in London.
But that same night, when one of the guests turns up dead in the hotel, it becomes clear that the killer is already among them.
Suspicion immediately falls on Christopher Wren, a young man who looks similar to the detective’s description of the criminal.
After a thorough questioning by the detective, it becomes clear that the murderer could be any one of them, including the hotel owners.
The revelation as to who the criminal is will be shocking, not least because ALL of them were suspects…!
