(From the publisher):
Mrs. Sheila Malory and actor David Beaumont have been friends since their salad days. Less green today, David is scrambling to save his charming, much-mortgaged cottage located across from the famed Royal Shakespeare Theatre. When his brother, the hated Dean of Culminster Cathedral, refuses to give him a loan, David's last hope is his family's stately home. But that can't be sold until his stubborn old nanny moves - or dies.
As luck would have it, she does. Her death appears to be an accident - until someone poisons the Dean. And David is the prime suspect. Called upon to solve this family tragedy, Mrs. Malory soon has her own list of suspicious characters - from the Dean's mousy wife to his librarian daughter to his very nervous son... all of whom had reasons to want the Dean dead.
But, as Mrs. Malory discovers, the evil men do lives after them - an evil that may be much closer than she realizes.
