Book description
Celia Grant's garden business is in trouble; and the bank now threatens foreclosure. Amateur sleuth and professional horticulturalist Celia is not one to give up easily. She'll even consider designing an Elizabethan garden for the obnoxious but very rich Victor Stratton. Before Celia can draw up the plans for the Clintbury estate garden, she finds herself in the middle of a strange family and a stranger police inquiry. Victor's uncle, Theo, was searching for orchids one day when he saved a woman from rape and accidentally killed her attacker. The case would seem to be open-and-shot, so why are people writing "murderer" on Victor's cr and slashing his tires? He was nowhere near the crime scene. And why, Celia asks, is nothing at Clintbury quite what it appears to be? Celia unearths far more sinister secrets at Clintbury than the remnants of a once magnificent garden, turns around the police inquiry from their certainty that drugs must be involved, as well as seeing that a kidnapped child was to be rescued at whatever cost.
