Crime & Mystery
There’s nothing sinister about Zander’s request for Bea Abbott to accompany him on an errand to a grieving widow, but it’s an awkward situation. Zander exposed a scam that his boss Denzil had been running on the Tudor Housing Trust…after which Denzil had, unexpectedly, died. His widow wants to sue the Trust, while the paperwork that could have proved her husband’s guilt has gone missing. Oliver, Bea’s computer geek of an assistant, is delighted to delve into the mysteries left on Denzil’s computer. 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.
