The two feuding branches of the Howes family sit side-by-side. Abby and her sleazy husband Silas are sure that her widowed sister-in-law is hiding the missing family money. Suzanne just wants to be left to raise her son. When summer boarder Tabitha Newell arrives with a tycoon's secretary in tow, followed by a mysterious man who carries a yellow silk scarf, Suzanne calls for Asey Mayo, general fix-it-man and skilled detective.

This is a real step up in plot. The first 4 where more formulaic this one has greater variety of action and character structure. All of them are well crafted but this one is the best since the first of the series, The Cape Cod Mystery.

A rather shaky outing in the Asey Mayo series. Too much of a focus on the 'lost treasure' and not enough on the crime and murder.
