Mrs. Jeffries and the Best Laid Plans



HOT UNDER THE WHITE COLLAR

Banker Lawrence Boyd didn't waste his time making friends, which is why hardly anyone grieves when he's found dead in his burnt-out studio. And when a gash in the old miser's head is discovered--pointing to murder--the list of suspects grows unwieldy. Luckily, Inspector Witherspoon has Mrs. Jeffries ever willing to lend a helping hand. It will take her shrewd eye to find the killer among Boyd's enemies from both upstairs and downstairs--everyone from his rival for chairman of the bank board, to the housekeeper whose money he invested and lost, to, well, just about anyone he'd ever met...

She keeps house for Inspector Witherspoon...and keeps him on his toes. Everyone's awed by his Scotland Yard successes but they don't know about his secret weapon. No matter how messy the murder or how dirty the deed, Mrs. Jeffries' polished detection skills are up to the task...proving that behind every great man there's a woman--and that a crimesolver's work is never done.
