Description
The feisty widow Melita Pargeter is put to the challenge when a dead body turns up in her wine cellar. Her "mild, pleasant manner and grand motherly demeanor", Booklist notes, "mask a mind like a steel trap, a cool head, and a wily intelligence; she's nobody's fool, thank you very much".

Of all Simon Brett's creations, none is more adored by mystery fans than the resourceful Mrs. Pargeter. In her newest adventure the plucky widow has decided to build her dream house on the plot of land left to her by that much missed prince of a man, and crook, Mr. Pargeter. Her plans are delayed when a dead man is discovered in her wine cellar and her builder, the talented Concrete Jacket, is arrested for murder.

The builder is no saint, but he's not a killer either. Unfortunately, the evidence is piling up -- and Concrete is refusing to help himself -- so Mrs. Pargeter had better step in. Ably assisted by her husband's colorful band of "business colleagues" -- Truffler Mason, Hedgeclipper Clinton, and Keyhole Crabbe -- she's determined to get to the bottom of things. But first, could somebody please explain why there's a monkey in her hotel room
