But she hardly expected it to include murder, blackmail and unrequited love. Or to involve a certain Chief Inspector Markby, a middle-aged divorcee with an emotional history as unfortunate as her own.

Steering a path between her duty to the police and her loyalty to her cousin's family is not easy, even for someone with Meredith's considerable diplomatic skills.
