Lucy Brenner has left her husband, her town, and her previous life behind. She lives in Longborough, a town halfway between Kingston and Toronto, where she runs a bed and breakfast and where, one day while working in the library, a phone call sets into action events that change her up-to-now quite predictable existence.

Lucy’s cousin, David Trimble, has died and made her his sole beneficiary. With some trepidation, she makes the impulsive decision to carry on his business - a private detective agency, though these might be grand words for the down-and-out ransacked office she finds upon visiting Toronto to lay claim to her unexpected inheritance.

Previously published in hardcover only, this is the first paperback release of the first Lucy Trimble mystery.
