What's going on in Crittlesham? Who is leaving gruesome objects around the town - and why? These questions need to be answered quickly by Detective Inspector Bob Mould and his team which, to his alarm and some amusement, is re-inforced by his mother, Dolly, and the other ladies who live at the Minnie Follett Home for the Elderly. The case is not helped by an elderly tramp, a semi feral youth with amazing powers over animals and a particularly unpleasant Chief Inspector. Light and fun are provided by the beautiful Sharleena Dews, a care assistant at the Home. She and Bob are mutually attracted but their courtship is far from trouble-free. Does he find the culprit and get the girl? Read all about it.
