No wonder the tea bushes didn't grow!
When Nigel Owen and Flick Adams-the managing director and curator of The Royal Tunbridge Wells Tea Museum-dug up two stunted tea bushes in the museum's lovely tea garden, the last thing they expected to find was the body of England's most famous missing person.
Etienne Makepeace, England's renowned "Tea Sage," had disappeared forty years earlier without a trace. But there he lies, in a shallow grave-and every policeman and reporter in the British Isles wants to know why. So does the stodgy director of the stodgy English bank that's about to fund the museum's acquisition of a major collection of antiquities. He's ready to pull the plug on the deal.
Flick and Nigel have no choice. To save their beloved museum, they must learn the secret of Makepeace's disappearance-before the reporters and the police! Their investigation takes them back to the 1960s and reveals what even the spymasters of Her Majesty's Secret Service don't know: Etienne Makepeace brewed more trouble than tea during the Cold War.
