In a tiny village on Dartmoor, a party of six gather in Sittaford House, the rented-out home of the absent Captain Trevelyan. After four days of snow, the group wrap up warm and settle down for the evening with a quiet game of table-turning. But the séance soon turns sinister when the board ominously spells out TREVELYAN DEAD… MURDER. Concerned on behalf of the Captain, Major Burnaby departs into the snowy night, heading on foot to Trevelyan’s Exhampton residence six miles away.
Is what the board is saying really true? If so, who could possibly be responsible for the murder of such a kind and honourable man?
