London, the 1890s. Society is in shock at the brutal murder of renowned banker Mr Beckleswaithe-Beckleswaithe, who has been cruelly decapitated by means of an explosive device concealed inside a chocolate cream. Gentleman detective the Hon. George St. Gath Umberley (known to his friends as George Up-to-date) is called in to investigate. With so few people possessing a motive, Umberley foresees no trouble getting to the bottom of the affair. As his investigations progress, however, the case takes an unexpected turn and he comes to realise that, for a detective, romance and business should not be allowed to mix… 

First published in 1896, and containing one of the most unusual murder weapons in detective literature, this engaging thriller is sure to delight modern readers!
