Bea Abbot runs a domestic agency that doesn't "do" murder. There's nothing sinister about Zander's request for Bea to accompany him on an errand to a grieving widow, but it's awkward because it was Zander who'd exposed the scam that 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. But 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, although the first death may have appeared natural, those which follow definitely do not--Publisher's description.

I think this is one of the better books in the Abbott Agency series. Not only is the story interesting, but all the characters at the agency are appealing.
