Description
The late Octavia Garamond's last wishes were very odd indeed. Her request for a police presence at her funeral bothers Inspector C. D. Sloane, but not nearly as much as her insistence that her body be thoroughly examined after death. Amelia Kennerly is worried, too, when her holiday is interrupted by the news that she has been appointed executrix for a great-aunt she only met once. Now she is in charge of executing a number of inconvenient requests from her late Aunt Octavia.But when Octavia Garamond's house is broken into and her papers ransacked, it begins to occur to all concerned that perhaps her written requests were not simply the ramblings of a senile old lady, but the actions of a woman in fear of her life. Inspector Sloane, aided (as it were) by Constable Crosby, finds himself facing an inexplicable puzzle. Who would want to harm a quiet eighty-year-old woman? He must dig deep into Garamond's past, both personal and professional, to uncover the key to a long-kept secret and reveal the sinister truth behind her tragic death.With Aird's characteristic charm and wit. A Going Concern is a delightful welcome back for Inspector C. D. Sloan.

display_descriptionA bizarre clause in an elderly woman's will exposes a dirty secret and a ruthless killing in this absorbing mystery from Diamond Dagger winner Catherine Aird It was an odd request, but when Octavia Garamond passed away, she left explicit instructions in her will: The police must be present at her funeral, and the coroner should be exceptionally thorough when examining her body. Amelia Kennerly is perplexed to find herself the sole executor of her great-aunt's will, as she barely knew her. Further questions arise when the local parson, Mr. Fournier, is anything but happy to conduct Octavia's service. Then someone breaks into Octavia's home and tears the house apart. It seems the old lady's words may have been eerily prescient: "Hell is empty, and all the devils are here."
