Summary on Blackmail The novel is mainly about a hit-and-run accident caused by the Duke and Duchess of Croydons.. They think that they will be safe by hiding their car in a place where no on

e can easily find out. However, the chief house detective, Ogilvie, who knows almost everything happened in the town, finds the secret and he wants to get a sum of money from the Duke and Duchess. The cigar is a clue in the development of the story. The first cigar means the start of the story. The second cigar witnesses the whole process of the blackmail. At the every beginning of the story, Ogilvie comes in with a wave of cigar smoke. At once, Duchess feels offensive to the smoke. She suggests Ogilvie to put out the cigar, but she fails. As Ogilvie believes that he is the third one except the couple knows the accident, he controls the situation of this talk. When Ogilvie talks about the Jaguar is just the car that caused this accident, Duchess denies such a fact. Ogilvie loses mild manner, takes out another cigar, tells the Duchess the consequences of this accident. Listening to Ogilvie’s words, Duchess feels wrathful, with arrogant, she warns Ogilvie to take care of what he has said. Even though the words make a little difference, Ogilvie still takes the role of leadership. He lights the second cigar, begins to tell the whole process of the accident. By the time Ogilvie leisurely puffs a cloud of blue cigar smoke, Duchess has no choice but wrinkles her nose in distaste, for she realizes the whole situation is under Ogilvie’s control. As Ogilvie continues to enjoy his cigar, he points out the evidence left in the accident. Hearing this, Duchess feels despaired. However, when she realizes the purpose of Ogilvie’s coming, she regains her sense and puts forward two ways to handle the accident. The first way is to repair the car discreetly, which is rejected by Ogilvie, for the reason that the police has told every repair shop to notice such kind of Jaguar. The second way is to remove the car to other state where the police cannot find out. Just at this time, Duchess finds the leadership gradually held by her. She positively asks Ogilvie about the evidence. She thinks they can use the greed of the hotel man to resolve the problem. She says to Ogilvie that she can give him 25,000 dollars more than Ogilvie has claimed, but he needs to drive the car away to Chicago. Facing the enormous lure, Ogilvie succumbs to the requirement. Finally he puts out the offending cigar for the sake of the Duchess.
