Welcome to the English villages - Applewick, Appledown, Applemere and Appleside - collectively known as ‘The Apples��� and home to the young Fairfax sisters - Esme, Bella and Isla. Theirs is a peaceful existence, enjoying the gentle rhythm of rural life... until Applewick receives a rude awakening. The body of local headteacher, Max Bartholomew, has been found bludgeoned to death in his study.

Sleepy Applewick is suddenly a hive of activity and Frank Fairfax, local funeral director and father of the three sisters, becomes the prime suspect. He was the very last person to see Max Bartholomew alive and, for some reason, the police are seemingly uninterested in looking for another potential perpetrator.

Determined to prove their father���s innocence, the sisters team up and sleuth their way through the clues in bid to find the identity of the real murderer. But with Esme's detective husband in charge of the case for the local CID, will the intrepid sisters be able to solve the murder before their amateur interference starts raising red flags? Or will their involvement lead to even more deadly consequences?
