Mrs. Jeffries Takes the Cake
The evidence was all there: a dead body, two dessert plates, and a gun. As if poor Mr. Ashbury had been sharing a bit of cake with his own killer! The old bloke had plenty of enemies. The neighbors called him a snoop. Even his own daughter disliked him. Now, Ashbury's son-in-law doesn't want Inspector Witherspoon nosing around. But that doesn't stop Mrs. Jeffries and her staff. They're more than happy to dish up some clues of their own...

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's polished detection skills are up to the task ... proving that behind every great man there's a woman--and that a crime-solver's work is never done.
