(From the publisher):
Dorothy Martin has begun to fit in quite comfortably in her new home of Sherebury, England, and now that her husband, Alan Nesbitt, has retired from the police force, she's looking forward to some quiet time with him... finally. But then the letter arrives: An old acquaintance in Hillsburg, Indiana, has died and left her a small inheritance. It's an excuse to travel back to the States, to show Alan where she spent most of her life... a well-deserved vacation for them both. Dorothy should have known better.
In addition to the money, Kevin Cassidy has left her a note suggesting that if he dies, he's been murdered. On the surface it seems absurd. A beloved professor, a man who loaned money to anyone who needed it, without expectation or desire of having it repaid, Cassidy was ninety-six when he succumbed, apparently to pneumonia. But Alan and Dorothy know about innocent facades. As she begins to ask questions, he makes a discovery of his own: His wife's sleuthing is hard work... and here, Dorothy is very much in charge. Now he must learn from her, and fortunately, she's as good a teacher as she is a detective.
