It’s murder in the little English village, but the two local spinsters, Miss Campanula, the victim, and Miss Prentice, her friend who may have been the intended victim, are not exactly the beloved little old ladies of song and story.

But could they have been sufficiently unpleasant to provoke a murderer?

Everyone acts in a suspicious fashion!
And a rather better description of a murderer than most with the clues right there to see. the story will continue well a little in another book death and the dancing footman. Wonderful series being reissed in trade paper backs. Mom
