Présentation de l'éditeur
Then Marion's charwoman is poisoned by milk obviously intended for her employer, and suspicion naturally falls on Helen Goddard until Marion herself is brutally murdered and Chief Inspector Morrissey discovers that a lot of people wanted her dead.
And then there are the missing children, too...
As Morrissey digs deeper he begins to untangle a hideous web of perversion, envy and murder - and skeletons start to tumble out of some very influential cupboards indeed…
