Summary

In the small Cotswold village of Heyford Bassett, vicar's wife Monica Noble throws a party for the village's new residents. The guests include Margaret Franklyn and her philandering husband, Sean, a celebrity chef; her cartoonist beau; a retired Oxford don with a secret; a 40-something divorcee; and the owner of a chain of gyms.

A shotgun blast heralds the discovery of Margaret Franklyn's body, terrifying the community on whom, inevitably, suspicion falls. Who to blame? The husband? Monica's daughter, who had been accused of stealing from the deceased?

Monica swings into action with the local DI to save her daughter and solve the crime.
