While Bea Abbot worries that she’s lost control of her domestic agency, she’s asked to find some domestic help for an eccentric little musician falsely accused of murder. She doesn’t realise how dangerous this might be until Evan – fleeing from attempts on his life – lands up on her doorstep.
Researching the gang who’d used an attractive girl to entrap Evan, Bea finds traces of them throughout high society and realises that some victims of the Badger Game may be uncomfortably close to home.
Can Bea sort out the problems at the agency and mend the broken relationships with her extended family before she is driven to sell up and retire? Worse, can Bea keep Evan alive while all he thinks about is composing a song for pretty, dead Josie?
