In September 1925, Scotland backyard DCI Alec Fletcher inherits a wide apartment at the outskirts of London, from a lately deceased great-uncle. thankfully so, as he and his spouse, the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher, are the hot proud mom and dad of twins and their home is essentially bursting on the seams. even though short of somewhat paintings, this new, greater residence turns out a godsend- set in a small circle of homes, with a communal backyard and Hamstead Heath within reach, the environment is idyllic.
Idyllic, that's until eventually a useless physique indicates up half-hidden below the timber of the communal backyard. Now rumors of bootleggers, American gangsters, and a world liquor smuggling operation through black ships have grew to become every thing of their new local the wrong way up. Alec is assigned by way of Scotland backyard to ferret out the reality in the back of the dastardly useless - yet it is as much as Daisy to determine who the lifeless guy is, what his courting to her new buddies is, why he used to be murdered and who did him in!
