Description
A dinner party at a Fedborough mansion with some stuffy, not very close friends is not exactly Jude's cup of tea. But the practically mummified torso of a woman found in the cellar is much more up Jude's alley. Once again, Jude and her reluctant neighbor Carole, find themselves embroiled in another puzzling whodunit. "Few crime writers are as enchantingly gifted...as Simon Brett." (Sunday Times, London) "A marvelous send-up of contemporary British society...the kind of writing that makes you want both to savor the prose slowly and to turn the page quickly." (Booklist, starred)

A dinner party at an English mansion with some stuffy, not-very-close friends is not exactly Jude's cup of tea—but the practically mummified torso of a woman found in the cellar is right up her alley. There is no way of knowing how long the dead body has been there, or even who it once was. Intrigued by this new mystery, Jude elicits the help of her reluctant neighbor, Carole, to help solve the case. And perhaps in the process she can snap Carole out of her growing depression, the result of a recently failed relationship.

Their detective work soon uncovers that Pelling House's previous owners include two divorced couples who harbor a lot of resentment—and Jude and Carole suspect that they may be harboring some dark secrets as well.

Once again, the two middle-aged women from Fethering find themselves embroiled in a puzzling whodunit.
