This charming series of Victorian murder mysteries features mild-mannered Inspector Witherspoon of Scotland Yard and, more importantly, Mrs Jeffries, his housekeeper. A policeman's widow herself, her quick wits allow her to nudge the Inspector in the right direction to solve the crime.
Nasty miser Abigail Hodges returns home angry at a warning from medium Esme Popejoy, absent servants and husband Leonard. An intruder shoots her in the head and chest, but few jewels are missing. Forged notes direct police to inheriting Felicity Marsden. But housekeeper Mrs Jeffries recruits staff to help Inspector Witherspoon to the truth.
Murder strikes at a Jubilee Ball in Queen Victoria's honour, which is also attended by Inspector Witherspoon and Mrs. Jeffries. The victim was a widely disliked member of the Hyde Park Literary Circle, where investigations into the crime open old wounds and reignite petty grievances ... 'Aghast, the inspector's jaw dropped even farther. He couldn't believe this. "Lady Cannonberry, have you any idea what you're saying?"'
