A charming series of Victorian murder mysteries featuring mild-mannered Inspector Witherspoon of Scotland Yard and, more importantly, Mrs Jeffries, his housekeeper.
It was true. Hannah Cameron was not well liked. But were her friends or family the sort to stab her in the back? To almost everyone, the answer is clear: she was killed by a burglar. And since Inspector Witherspoon is not a burglary detective, he has to take a backseat to the odious Inspector Nivens! Mrs Jeffries and the rest of the household must really tiptoe around this time. And if they're not extra careful, it could be a matter of more bodies piling up before they're done!
