The accusation that Jenny Kensington, whom he has long loved, is behind the murders of two women recently connected with the Fengate estate, leads Richard Jury to the conclusion that he needs someone inside Fengate--someone who can impersonate an antiques expert. Enter Melrose Plant, detective manque. And in his wake follows a cast of characters that Martha Grimes's fans have come to love in this affecting story that is by turns crushingly sad and wonderfully funny.

The Lincolnshire fens are the right setting for Richard Jury's latest case, a mystifying double murder. The body of one woman is found on the wash; another woman lies floating in a canal in Windy Fen. Both women are connected with Fengate: Dorcas Reese, a servant; Verna Dunn, the louche ex-wife of the owner, Max Owen, a man with a passion for antiques.
