A standalone mystery from the author of the Kelsey and Lambert series. A number of people in the Midland town of Milbourne felt their lives would be happier without Zena Yorke, for Zena, rich, spoilt, once-beautiful, diabetic, sat like a spider at the heart of a web of intrigue. There was her husband, initially successful in his garment factory because of her but now grown tired of her; Arnold Pierson, the firm's accountant, over whom she had a mysterious hold; her hard-up brother, casting covetous eyes at Zena's money; her beautiful sister-in-law who feared what Zena could disclose. In this situation the arrival in the town of a pretty widow acted as a catalyst. Yet when Zena died, the family doctor was satisfied it was from natural causes. There was no case to investigate.
