Publisher's Summary

For Mrs Pargeter, it is a matter of principle that she should complete any of her late husband's unfinished business. Amongst his many bequests, perhaps the most valuable is his little black book, in which he listed all the people who ever worked for him, with details of their particular skill sets. This means that whenever Mrs P has a crime to solve, she can readily contact someone with the relevant expertise.
Attending the funeral of the respected Sir Normington Winthrop, because his name is in the book, Mrs Pargeter sets out to discover the connection between Sir Normington and her late husband. Her investigations will draw her into a shady world of gunrunners, shifty politicians - and a kidnapped vicar.

Mrs Pargeter and her eclectic entourage are wonderful. Please record more. The world is a grayer place without Mrs Pargeter. I'm sure there be someone in Ps black book to help make this happen.

Fun story, interesting new angle on a mystery

Gentle modern times fantasy. Characters initially seem unassuming and develop intriguingly. Some plot ambiguities, the 'answer' is not particularly well hidden. A fun listen.
