It's not so hard to beat Inspector Littlejohn to the solution when he's sent to the little village of Hilary Magna to investigate the death of a local woman. Although there's a war on, it doesn't seem to have impinged on the tiny Sussex town yet. Miss Tither may have been killed because her hectoring irritated someone too much, or because her snoopiness found a secret that someone wanted hidden. There are a number of quaint characters.
