|'A Surfeit of H2O'
by Colin Finbow
When a poacher mysteriously drowns in the middle of a field, Steed and Mrs. Peel are called in to investigate. They soon encounter a carpenter named Jonah preaching of a Great Flood, a large cloud that permanently hangs over the local winery, and torrential downpours that occur at regular intervals. They eventually discover that the wine merchant, Doctor Strum, is planning to retire on the millions he will make from selling a rain-making device that can conquer a country by drowning it to death…
