Ellie is desperate to find someone to look after their elderly housekeeper, Rose, whose health is failing. But employing a carer recommended by Ellie’s difficult daughter, Diana, proves to be a mixed blessing as, when Ellie returns from a trip to America, she finds that Claire has implemented a number of bizarre changes to the Quicke household routine.
Claire, Ellie soon discovers, is heavily involved in ‘The Vision’, a local church with a charismatic, powerful pastor, who – seemingly coincidentally – is looking to Ellie’s charitable trust for financial help in his current project of housing reformed addicts. Ellie is suspicious – and becomes more so, when details of Claire’s chequered past comes to light. Can Ellie trust Claire or Pastor Ambrose? Ellie investigates and doesn’t like what she finds.
The sixteenth in the Ellie Quicke series.
