Brad Withers, president of the Sloan Guaranty Trust, asks senior banker John Putnam Thatcher as a personal favor to help negotiate a property settlement that is at the contentious center of the pending divorce of his sister and her husband, millionaire blueblood Gil Austin. Thatcher travels to veddy-veddy upscale Shaftesbury, Connecticut, just in time for the murder of Austin’s intended bride, who is found with her neck broken in a closet at the local inn. Was she murdered in a fit of passion by one of the parties affected by the divorce, or did someone have an even more compelling motive than jealousy?

The second of Emma Lathen’s witty mysteries featuring elegant, urbane John Putnam Thatcher, senior vice president and head of the trust department at Sloan (third largest bank in the world) and a formidable ferreter-out financial - and other - secrets.
