People call her a goody-goody, but Maggie just wants to do the right thing. Perhaps she shouldn’t have left the comfortable employ at the Camford house, but Miss Dolly was so insistent that she needed Maggie to accompany her as her new secretary. But why did they need to leave in the middle of the night? When they arrive at their secretive destination, it’s nothing but a rather decrepit cottage by a lake—and occupied by two men, the artist Neely and his inebriated companion, Johnny Cassidy. This wouldn’t do!
The next morning Miss Dolly’s lawyer, Mr. Angel, comes calling. Later that day Maggie finds him dead in one of the row boats, and Neely immediately tries to hide the body. But what should she tell the policeman, Captain Hofer? She wants to do right, but everyone works against her. Maggie doesn’t want to get Miss Dolly in trouble. But something is very wrong here. Mr. Angel may be dead, but everyone treats her like the kill joy.
