(From the publisher):
The evidence was all there: a dead body, two dessert plates, and a gun. As if poor Mr. Ashbury had been sharing a bit of cake with his own killer! The old bloke had plenty of enemies. The neighbors called him a snoop. Even his own daughter disliked him. Now Ashbury's son-in-law doesn't want Inspector Witherspoon nosing around. But that doesn't stop Mrs. Jeffries and her staff. They're more than happy to dish up some clues of their own...
