What's the Mystery Here?
Detective Inspector Ben Cleveleys gets a call about a break-in, but he's off-duty and sends Detective Sergeant Sandra Thornton what she finds is a web of dubious characters, some of them with serious grudges. There's
Jacob Gilmore, a seedy entrepreneur
Lola Gilmore, Jacob's wife
Candy Gilmore, their daughter
Antique dealer's widow Monica Goose, who made the original call
Jacob's housekeeper, Celia Morgan
Patricia Lemmon, Jacob's secretary
Jack Harris, a doctor
Sweetshop proprieter Mimosa ‘Mimsy’ Mumford, (who may not be a sweet shop proprietor!)
What starts as a low-key enquiry develops into Cleveley's speciality - homicide.
