The holiday season brings a mix of merriment, mayhem, and
murder. And it falls to Inspector Witherspoon - with a
significant portion of help from the ever-watchful Mrs.
Jeffries - to find the culprit...
THE BUSINESS OF DEATH
Orlando Edison is a stockbroker using London's infatuation
with foreign mining ventures to make a fortune. He has
curried favor with the nation's most respected
aristocrats, even inviting three of the most influential
investors in England-known as the Merry Gentlemen-to be
part of his latest enterprise.
Despite his mysterious past, Edison is now welcomed in the
highest circles and moves with ease among the rich and
powerful. Yet a few days before Christmas, he is found
sprawled across his doorstep, murdered. Charismatic and
charming, Edison was kind to his servants and generous with
his friends. Why would someone want him dead?
Inspector Witherspoon and his household are all looking
forward to the festive season. Witherspoon is eager to spend
time with his godchild. Wiggins, the footman, is infatuated
with football and would rather cheer goals than chase down
clues. And Mrs. Goodge longs to bake recipes from the latest
cookbooks. But they all know their duty and, led by the
intrepid Mrs. Jeffries, they plan to see justice served for
