Jemima Shore didn't plan on a life of detection. But at the age of fifteen, while staying at a Catholic boarding school, she found herself plunged into a bizarre situation involving a suspicious miracle and a flamboyant, manipulative Italian princess. This case and the twelve that follow provide a delightful introduction to the world of Jemima Shore.

In "The Case of the Parr Children;" Jemima travels to a remote area of Scotland to determine the identity of two children, and in "Your Appointment Is Cancelled;" she becomes involved in the case of her favorite hairdresser, whose son-in-law has been found dead in the salon, his head bashed in with a hair-dryer. In "Death of an Old Dog;" a young wife has her elderly husband's beloved, ancient dog put to sleep, and in "Have a Nice Death;" a mild-mannered author of a bestselling book on masochistic women suddenly finds the denizens of New York City too friendly for comfort... and in each case, Jemima Shore triumphs with style, humor, and flair.
