Penelope Adair, wife and partner of amateur sleuth Barnaby
Adair, is so hugely pregnant she cannot even waddle. When
Barnaby is summoned to assist Inspector Stokes of Scotland
Yard in investigating the violent murder of a gentleman at a
house party, Penelope, frustrated that she cannot
participate, insists that she and Griselda, Stokesâ€™s wife,
be kept informed of their husbandsâ€™ discoveries.
Yet what Barnaby and Stokes uncover only leads to more
questions. The murdered gentleman had been thrown out of the

would-be lovers hunt for a path through the maze of
contradictory facts to expose the murderer, disperse the
pall of scandal, and claim the love and the shared life they
