Murder on the square Having succumbed to her eldest daughter's pleas for a London Season, Lady Priscilla arrives in town -- all her children in tow -- and wonders if remaining in rural Stonehall-on-Sea mightn't have been a better idea. Her regrets are borne out when she learns of three suspicious deaths among the servants employed in the Bedford Square homes. . .and a fourth follows. But this time, the victim is a gentleman -- and murder is confirmed.
An already grim situation becomes downright macabre when it is discovered that the victims' bodies have been snatched from their graves! Determined to get to the bottom of the sordid goings-on spreading fear throughout the parish, Priscilla engages Sir Neville's help. Any excuse to spend time with Priscilla suits Neville, but the more information they gather, the more he is convinced that someone with a most desperate agenda wants to bring their investigation to a quick -- and deadly -- end. . .
