Harold Milton's body has been found by his brother Rufus Milton, lying in his seaside cottage. There are signs of a break-in and a fight. Death occurred three days earlier, and there are two days newspapers lying on the porch. Brother Rufus has been out sailing alone for three days, and claims he returned to find the cottage in this state. He admits that he has had a quarrel with his brother, who would normally have come with him, but asserts that he left him alive and well. Can his alibi be broken?
