Summary
Over three successive nights, Harry Johnson spins a tale for Richard Jury in the Old Wine Shades, the story of a good friend of his whose wife and son (and dog) disappeared one day when they were in Surrey. No trace, no clue, no lead as to what happened. He's a fascinating bloke, this Harry Johnson--rich, handsome and brainy on the subject of quantum mechanics and superstring theory, which as some pretty funny notions about the nature of reality. Jury wonders, Is Harry Johnson winding me up? The dog did come back--but how? When Jury investigates, all seems to be just as Harry described it. Until they find the body
