Aunt Bessie yearns for a typical walk on the beach.
It’s been exactly two years since Elizabeth Cubbon, Aunt Bessie to nearly everyone, found a dead body on Laxey Beach. Since then, finding murder victims has been something of an unfortunate habit for her.
Aunt Bessie yearns for a quiet life where she never finds dead bodies.
Unfortunately for Bessie, she once again stumbles over a murdered man on her morning walk. Harrison Parker was a newspaper reporter for a London paper, but he used to work on the Isle of Man.
Aunt Bessie yearns to understand why the police are so certain that Harrison’s death is tied to someone at Thie yn Traie, the beachfront mansion near Bessie’s cottage.
Thie yn Traie’s owner, George Quayle, has four guests staying with him at the moment. They all seem to have secrets, but are any of them worth killing for? With the mansion’s regular butler off the island, Bessie is missing one of her best sources of inside information.
Can the temporary butler, Geoffrey Scott, be persuaded to tell Bessie everything he knows? Which of the four men has a secret he’s prepared to kill to keep? Can Bessie help the police solve the case, and finally get the peaceful life for which she yearns?
