A church party turns deadly for antiques dealer Lina Townend when she thwarts a thief in this British mystery. Helping out at a church fEte is about the last thing Lina Townend wants to do on a beautiful summer's afternoon. But since the vicar is an old friend, Lina finds herself agreeing to sell a bunch of bric-a-brac. Nothing too exciting happens at the harmless event-until someone tries to steal a tatty old snuffbox. While the piece doesn't look like much, it seems the box is valuable enough for the would-be thief to attack Lina's business partner Griff, frame Lina for a crime-and kill an old friend. Lina never imagined a little old snuffbox could cause so much trouble. Now, she has to clear her name by catching the real culprit, before anyone else gets snuffed out.
