Prim and proper Carole Seddon is a textbook Fethering citizen, but her neighbor, Jude, the bohemian healer with a colorful past, is not. Despite their differences, they make for an unbeatable, amateur sleuthing team and their skills are needed now more than ever.
Sleazy author Burton St Clair has been murdered. Late last night, his wandering hands found their way onto Jude and today the police are on her doorstep. Not only was Jude at the library-cum-crime scene, but she was the last person to see Burton St Clair alive. Now a prime suspect, Jude recruits Carole to dust off their detecting skills and prove Jude's innocence.
