Overview

 In a brand-new mystery from the author of The Measby Murder Enquiry, the cantankerous golden years gumshoe Ivy Beasley keeps her mental faculties sharp with a strict regimen of crime detection. 
Apart from the unwelcome noise made by the morning cleaning crew, life has been quiet at Springfields Home for the Elderly. Too quiet, in fact. Ivy and her team of sleuths, Enquire Within, have resorted to finding lost cats, and Gus is even threatening to return to his memoirs. But no sooner does he attempt to put a winning phrase together than he receives a call from his ex-wife, Katherine, who is in desperate needs of a place to hide.
 
Though Gus has a difficult time getting a straight answer from Kath—just as it was in their many years of marriage—something is most certainly afoot, and soon Enquire Within is back in business. This time they have their hands full, not only with missing pets, but missing jewels, and evidence of foul play uncomfortably close to their too quiet home…

Editorial Reviews

Fresh Fiction
 “Ivy Beasley is a truly unique character, a kind of cross between Jessica Fletcher, Miss Marple, and Mrs. Slocum.”

    Highly Recommend Series

    Anything that Ann Purser writes is good. I look forward to the next book in both of her series. Ivy Beasley is quite a character, and the fact that she has become engaged at her age to another resident just adds to the story. The entire enquiry team is so likeable.

    Good puzzle, but not my cup of tea.

    I enjoyed figuring out the puzzle, good job with that, but the main character gets on my nerves. Might just be my perspective, but I don't find any affinity with her, she's the type of person I would not think well of in real life. Her attitudes and behavior at times don't seem to have any other basis than selfishness that she should have worked her way out of at this point in her life.
