Bea Abbot and her two young assistants run a domestic agency which doesn’t ‘do’ murder. There was nothing sinister about Zander’s request for Bea to accompany him on an errand to a grieving widow, but it was awkward because it was Zander who had exposed the scam which his boss Denzil had been running on the Tudor Housing Trust . . . after which Denzil had, unexpectedly, died.
Oliver, Bea’s computer geek of an assistant, is delighted to delve into the mysteries left on Denzil’s computer until Zander and Oliver find themselves suspected of murder, while Bea thinks up a novel way to rescue her son’s failing marriage. As the plot thickens, it emerges that though the first murder may have appeared natural, those which followed did not.
