Kidnapped? But why is there no ransom demand? Who would want to murder this harmless woman who takes pride in her work for the Orchid Club?
Flamboyant property developer Joseph McGilvray was looking forward to the cocktail party of the season. What he didn't expect was that his dowdy wife Alice would be snatched by a masked intruder in full view of his gaping party guests. The police investigation comes to a dead end. It is up to Anne O'Leary, aspiring chef and unwilling toilet cleaner (with a soft spot for the McGilvray's son Nick) to solve it.
