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! It looks like Mr. Pargeter's old nemesis, Posey Narker, is up to his tricks again. If only Mr. Pargeter were still alive to help them concoct a plan. Leave it to the one and only Mrs. P, a heroine much adored by mystery fans, to figure out a way to get his help and to mastermind a bit of skullduggery herself. As The New York Times Book Review has said, each new caper "invites the reader to indulge the stouthearted Mrs. Pargeter and her merry band of lovable crooks and con men in another jolly series romp." And Mrs. Pargeter's Point of Honour provides a thrilling caper to last a lifetime from
