(The first book in the Madoc / Rys series)
A novel by

 
VEGETABLES CAN BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH!

Old Agatha Treadway baked her own bread, canned her own vegetables---and died of botulism in her very own kitchen. Accident, says Dr. Druffitt. Murder, says neighbor Janet Wadman. And says it again when she finds the doctor dead, too. Detective Inspector Madoc Rhys, of the royal Canadian Mounted Police, agrees. But who's the killer...the town miser, who wants the one thing only Mrs. Treadway could have given him?

The miser's son who's panting for the doctor's daughter? Widow Druffitt, who's holding secret meetings with unlikely people? The hired girl who listens at keyholes? The hired man who hides in haylofts? It's an awful mess...and when Rhys gets it sorted out, he faces an even tougher problem of his own.
