Yorkshire, 1930.

Kate Shackleton arrives at the garden party with her niece Harriet to celebrate the success of newly crowned Yorkshire Brewery Queen Ruth Parnaby. As companion to Ruth, Harriet explores the brewery, but it's Kate who opens the wrong door, finds herself staring at the body of a brewery worker and in danger of asphyxiation.

With the discovery of financial discrepancies, family secrets and the lure of national success for Ruth, motives for murder and abduction abound. Sometimes a threat comes from the most unexpected quarter, and it's up to Kate to fathom the mystery.

The 12th enthralling murder mystery in the best-selling Kate Shackleton series.
