Summary
"In the autumn of 1926, the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher is contacted by an old schoolmate looking for a favor. Sybil Sutherby, long out of touch, was widowed by the war and now lives in Derbyshire, working as the confidential secretary to a novelist. Suspecting that something is seriously amiss in the household, Sybil asks Daisy to visit her at Eyrie Farm and discreetly investigate. Upon arrival, Daisy finds a household of relatives and would-be suitors living off the hospitality of Humphrey Birtwhistle, who had been supporting them through his thrice-yearly pseudonymous novels. When he took ill, though, Sybil took over writing them while he recovered, only to see the sales, and hence the advances, increase. Now she fears that someone in the household is poisoning Birtwhistle to keep him ill and to keep Sybil writing the better-paying versions. But before Daisy can even get decently under way, Humphrey Birtwhistle dies under suspicious circumstances."--Dustjacket flap
