(1939)
(A book in the Nigel Strangeways series)
A novel by

 
The Strangeways think their days of globe-trotting detective work are behind them, but little do they know that a disturbing mystery is lurking in their own front yard...

Detective Nigel Strangeways and his wife, Georgia, have moved to the countryside and settled into rural bliss. But when a letter arrives commanding the couple to tend their hedges, the most menial of domestic duties uncovers a secret that propels the couple out of their cozy life and into the peril of a power-hungry plot.

With the help of Nigel's uncle, Sir John Strangeways, the couple learns of a treasonous conspiracy bigger than their small town. To expose the sinister schemers, Georgia must risk her life and infiltrate a group of fascist sympathisers before they succeed in their plan to overthrow the government.
