Mrs. Jeffries must help Inspector Witherspoon crack a new case and catch a killer in this next installment of the beloved Victorian Mystery series.

Successful businessman Jeremy Marks wasn’t highly regarded by any of the members of the West London Archery Club.  Most of them considered him a buffoon and a bore.  But everyone was stunned when the fellow was murdered during a lull in the club’s annual archery competition.  He’d been shot with arrows from a longbow during a raging thunderstorm.

But those who knew Marks well understood that the unkempt "court jester" persona adopted by the late, unlamented man was as fake as the smile he wore.  As Inspector Witherspoon investigates the murder, he discovers the victim had real enemies among the assembled archery contestants.  Marks was notorious for not paying his bills, cheating vendors, bad-mouthing business rivals, and worst of all, betraying his business partners.  The dead man had built a whole career and amassed quite a substantial fortune by harming those who trusted him. It will take Mrs. Jeffries and the inspector’s household as well as their friends to sort out fact from fiction and target a killer.
