    Alfie McAlister has retreated from London to the peace and quiet of the country to recover from a personal tragedy.

After arriving in Bunburry, he is co-opted as an amateur detective by Liz and Marge, two elderly ladies who were best friends with Alfie's late Aunt Augusta. And it is not long before their investigations take an even more dramatic turn.
