The missionary in these stories is a man who by accident stumbles upon extraordinary crimes. In There Are No Pockets In Our Grave Clothes, a dying woman is supposed to have swallowed a diamond, but the illegal autopsy reveals a stunning surprise. In The Hit of a Marksman, a sharpshooter aims at the heart of a man but even though the bullet hits the spot, the heart turns out to be unharmed. In The Apostolic Destruction, a bishop is murdered by poison and the unlikely murderer is pinpointed many years later. And in The Multicolored Herring, the clue leading to the solution of a murder turns out to be - misleading! These and other stories feature the kind of impossible crimes that the missionary is facing in this short story collection.
