Agnes Sharp has enough to worry about, thank you very much! There’s the hip, the broken stairlift and of course her unruly housemates, a bunch of eccentric fellow pensioners. However, now there’s a dead old lady in the potting shed. And another dead old lady in the neighboring garden. Idyllic English village life suddenly has a crack and someone is out to get them. A perfidious murderer is on the loose!

Agnes and her feisty housemates roll up their sleeves, grab their trusty tortoise and set out in pursuit of the murderer. The hunt for the killer will lead them onto the slippery parquet of the local Community Coffee Club, to the sinister Limetree House and – most frighteningly – deep into their own past. Turns out that Agnes and her crew have their own old secrets to guard…
