Well plotted, lots of good suspects, secrets and illicit love affairs and a grand old house. Good read. Never disappointed by Elizabeth Ferrars.

Charles has not visited his aunt in several years--since before her accident, in fact--because he's been trying to fall out of love with the married woman who is her neighbor. Now he thinks he's strong enough to face Deborah again, but before he can, he finds his aunt dead. The police think it's a case of an old woman falling downstairs, but his aunt told him only a few hours earlier that she doesn't go upstairs anymore.
