Jack Gibbons is an ambitious young detective sergeant at Scotland Yard, and his best friend is Jack's own personal Peter Wimsey, the charismatic and wealthy man-about-town Philip Bethancourt, who likes to tag along on Gibbons' more interesting investigations. His latest case certainly deserves Philip's attention: Geoffrey Berowne has been poisoned and everyone believes his much-younger wife Annette is guilty--especially since her two previous husbands also died under suspicious circumstances--but no one can prove it. A closer look provides more suspects--Geoff's curmudgeonly sister-in-law, who resented his new wife; and his beleaguered son and unhappy daughter-in-law, for starters. But everything keeps coming back to the alluring widow, who, to Philip's alarm, seems to have turned her charms on Jack. Can they solve the case before Jack becomes her next victim?--Publisher.
