When a doctor is discovered dead in his own office, Mrs Jeffries is on the look-out for a prescription for murder, determined to discover the culprit, despite how her employer feels about interviewing suspects...

Any additional comments?

I couldn't get into this at all. The detective is a well intentioned idiot who's servants are grateful to him for keeping them employed. His housekeeper is a detecting genius and prompts him. It was all very cliched. I admit I only got about 1/3 of the way through so it may all get much better after that but I was kicking myself for having wasted a credit on this.

Not worth reading

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

An unbelievable story about a police inspector who is tricked by his housekeeper into solving crimes. Not worth listening to. This is the 1st in the series - I won't be buying the rest.
