Nobody in the little town of Finch was really surprised when Prunella "Pruneface" Hooper came to a nasty end—but murder? There hadn't been a murder in Finch since 1872 when one shepherd bashed another with the hook of his crook. Despite her hectic home schedule with her three-year-old twins, Lori agrees to investigate. But narrowing the list of suspects is a major challenge: the newly arrived Pruneface had quickly become privy to everyone's secrets—and used her secret knowledge to plant rumors, nurture backbiting, resurrect feuds, and season it all with downright lies. Almost everyone had a reason to want her dead.
