A mysterious bout of sickness hits the parish after a lunch at church and Ellie is horrified to discover that her home-baked quiches are considered to be the source of the problem. Worse still, someone dies. So who is to blame?
Fighting off the relentless demands of her daughter Diana and plagued by toothache, Ellie’s life is beset with problems – not least the insistence of an old flame that she takes his proposal of marriage seriously.
When more suspect food turns up, Ellie’s investigative instincts are aroused, for these incidents seem connected in some way with her young friend Felicity’s troubled past.
The seventh Ellie Quicke Mystery.
