Alex and Kate have recently retired to the sleepy English village of Nether Bromley and life is good. Alex grew up there and was the local butcher's delivery boy in his teens. The death of a dear old friend, Sandie Gresham, at 91, was the sad ending of a long friendship for Alex that began in 1965. She was the utterly respectable village doctor's daughter, and he delivered meat to their house. Sandie occasionally paid the enterprising teenager to make some extra deliveries to the vicarage on his rounds. Her deathbed letter to Alex, arriving the day after he returned from her funeral, changed everything he knew about Sandie and revealed what was actually in her special deliveries to the vicar.
