The Jester is an alien lifeform who travels the universe. In this story he has come to visit the Earth, which he last visited a thousand years ago, when he spent his time in Ireland, where the locals worshipped him as a god and called him a Leprechaun.

He is called The Jester advisedly, because he is a jolly but mischievous character who likes to play tricks on people. He is not evil, he just likes having fun. Sometimes he makes dreams come true.

In this story he plays two japes. In the first one he takes a leaf out of an Agatha Christie story by placing dead bodies, of naked women, in the libraries of six of the landed gentry in this country, just in order to baffle the police and have fun with them. In his second jape he has further fun by involving himself with the robbery of an ancient religious object – the alleged skull of a saint!
