Description
Mrs. Pargeter has faced some formidable challenges, but her resourcefulness is truly put to the task when a terminally ill widow decides to give back all of the Old Master paintings her husband so lovingly "collected" for her during his checkered lifetime. It is up to Mrs. P to get the paintings to their rightful owners -- stealthily of course, so they cannot be traced.

When Melita's crew prepares to smuggle the art out of Britain to the countries of origin, they discover the paintings have already been taken -- by some unknown group of thieves!

And Mrs. Pargeter's Point of Honour provides a thrilling caper to last a lifetime from
