Mystery Woman Sleuth | Mystery Cozy
Ivy Beasley from Round Ringford days has moved to an old
folks` residence in Barrington, a small village in
Suffolk. Stroppy and autocratic as ever, she is busy
shaping the place up to her standards, when Augustus
Halfhide, tall, thin and oddly attractive in a wispy kind
of way, moves into Hangman`s Row in the village. He is a
mystery, determined to give nothing away about his past,
and when he offers to see Ivy home from church one day, it
is the beginning of an unlikely and fruitful relationship.
Alongside Ivy, Gus enlists Ivy`s much younger cousin
Deirdre, and Ivy`s admirer, Roy Goodman, in setting up a
detective agency called Enquire Within. Almost
immediately, their first case makes its shocking
appearance in the village. Another resident of Hangman`s
Row, an old woman known for her sharp tongue and
persecution of her hapless daughter Miriam, is found far
from well on the floor of her cottage.
Enquire Within is in business!
