Summary
Was it a misstep that sent a handsome stranger plummeting to his death from a cliff? Or something more sinister? Fun-loving adventurers Bobby Jones and Frances Derwent's suspicions are certainly roused--espeically since the man's dying words were so peculiar: Why didn't the ask Evans? Bobby and Frances would love to know. Unfortunately, asking the wrong people has sent the amateur sleuths running for their lives--on a wild and deadly pursuit to discover who Evans is, what it was he wasn't asked, and why the mysterious inquiry has put their own lives in mortal danger ..

Summary
Bobby Jones is retrieving a wayward golf ball at the base of a cliff when he discovers an unconscious man whose back is broken. The man regains consciousness long enough to utter the words "Why didn't they ask Evans?" before he dies. A few days after the inquest, Bobby is drugged when someone slips what should have been a deadly dose of morphine into his beer. Bobby decides to investigate the matter further and his friend Lady Frances Derwent agrees to help. The two of them are soon hard at work to discover the murderer of the dead man, but as they approach the truth, they find their own lives in danger
