From the back cover: Was it suicide or was it murder? Arrows point in all directions. And in the case of the death of Jane Holdsworth, one is aimed right at Richard Jury, among the last people known to have seen her alive. Having been romantically involved with the victim, Jury finds himself one of the suspects, and temporarily suspended from the Force. So it falls to Melrose Plant to travel to the Lake District, home of the other members of the Holdsworth family, to do some surreptitious sleuthing. His enquiries are more hindered than helped by the residents of Castle Howe, the posh ‘retirement home’ where the rich - including Adam Holdsworth - are left to get on with the business of death and bequests. More useful are eleven-year-old Millie Thale, master chef; Alex Holdsworth, Jane’s teenage son; the regulars at the Old Contemptibles pub and the Lake poets themselves. With their aid, Melrose comes closer and closer to a solution he detests, only to be confounded by another death. Was it suicide or was it murder?
