Murder! Mystery! Suspense â€¦ and don’t forget the Nazi sympathisers.
Monica Sefton is a lady in danger. With all the research she’s been doing for her latest crime novel she’s figured out how to commit the perfect murder. And with the help of her neighbour Doctor Gresham, it’s just the formula for the perfect poison that she needs and she’ll have the biggest crime novel ever written in her hands. That is, if she doesn’t become a part of a murder plot herself.
Her husband Bill’s been sacked from his job as a crime reporter because he knew too much about the illustrious philanthropist Sir Charles Redmond and his shady past. When Redmond is found dead due to mysterious causes and an unfamiliar corpse becomes uncovered in the Sefton’s closet, the Sefton’s find themselves embroiled in a scandal straight out of the pages of a murder mystery.
Will Monica’s perfect crime become more than a work of fiction? Will an innocent person be put away for a scandalous murder? And who will be caught with blood on their hands?
