A storm is brewing in Dorset.
Poochie Vickers, the local aristocrat, is becoming even more
eccentric in her old age. She's taken up shoplifting and
reckless driving but refuses to see a doctor. Her worrisome
daughter, Claudia, is angling to take over the family
fortune, which makes some of the would-be beneficiaries
uneasy. Two of Dorset's biggest troublemakers are being
released from prison. And the bad blood between these two
families, rich on the one hand, swamp Yankee on the other,
could come to a boiling point: Two young people from the
families are dating, to no one's delight but their own.
Someone is bound to snap, and someone does, resulting in the
brutal murder of a harmless and homeless man who went about
town collecting recyclables.
While Des is trying to track down the murderer, she's also
trying to wrap her head around the idea of marrying Mitch.
When so many things are going wrong, loving someone seems
like a big risk.
Handler's fifth novel in this charming and edgy series
displays his deftness in creating memorable, distinctive
characters and for crafting uniquely entertaining mysteries.
