Publisher's Summary

Lady Amanda Golightly of Belchester Towers is a person in complete contrast to the stereotypical image of her upper-class breeding. She is short, portly, and embarrassingly forthright.

On a visit to a local nursing home, she unexpectedly discovers a long-lost friend, Hugo Cholmondley-Crichton-Crump - and stumbles upon a murder. The pair turn to sleuthing after Lady Amanda reports her appalling discovery to the local police inspector, who treats her as a silly old biddy with an overactive imagination. Her outrage prompts her to teach the impertinent young whippersnapper a lesson, and she and Hugo (Zimmer frame in tow) start investigating, only for murder to become a distressingly frequent occurrence....

    "Fluffy and insipid"

    The two leads from Waiting for God investigate a suspicious death. The characters are enjoyable enough, if thoroughly predictable. But the police are presented as such bumbling idiots that I was actually left slack-jawed at the denouement. Excellent reader, flaccid story.
