So, when she’s found dead in the communal gardens, Inspector Witherspoon quickly narrows the field of suspects down to one: Lucius Montague, who was seen threatening Mrs. Langston-Jones shortly before her death.<br /><br />The Inspector and all of&#xa0;London&#xa0;are positive that he’s the killer, but Mrs. Jeffries has doubts.&#xa0;Her biggest problem is that Lucius Montague is a very disagreeable character and no one—including Inspector Witherspoon’s staff—is inclined to save his skin.&#xa0;Now, she must turn the tide of the investigation...or watch an innocent man take the fall for the real killer.<br /><br /><b><br />A Mrs. Jeffries Mystery</b><br /><br />She keeps house for Inspector Witherspoon...and keeps him on his toes. Everyone’s awed by his Scotland Yard successes—but they don’t know about his secret weapon. No matter how messy the murder or how dirty the deed, Mrs. Jeffries’ polished detection skills are up to the task...proving that behind every great man there’s a woman—and that a crimesolver’s work is never done.
