Malice in the Cotswolds
It is the start of the school summer holidays and Thea is in Snowshill. The house she is taking care of is crammed to bursting with precious ornaments, much as Snowshill Manor itself is. The village is pleasant and the people generally welcoming. But the murder that takes place right outside the house is deeply distressing for Thea and others. Joined by Drew Slocombe on a trip to London in an attempt to discover what happened, Thea is buffeted by events throught her stay.
