A standalone mystery from the author of the Kelsey and Lambert novels. A number of people stood to benefit from Harry Mallinson's death and Henry Mallinson was old and sick and very rich. His estranged elder son needed money for his business. His younger son did not want to see his father's will changed. His pretty daughter-in-law needed money to lay of ghost from her past to rest. His godson was behind with instalments on a motorcycle. His nurse needed a few thousand to buy a son a small-holding and his secretary a few hundred to buy herself expensive clothes. So when Henry Mallinson died - not from natural causes - there was no lack of suspects for the police.
