(From the publisher):
Who put the body in Asey Mayo's buttery?
Who, in the first place, had caused it to be a corpse?
Had that bash on the head come from a well-aimed skillet like the one on the buttery wall - the kind they call the iron spider?
When Asey's hefty cousin Jennie disappears, along with six Cape Cod skillets, the fat is indeed in the fire, and Jennie might possibly get burned.
With just forty-eight hours to solve the whole crazy mess, the hayseed Yankee sleuth sets to work on one of his most baffling cases.
