Pepper seeking something for the Aunts in a spare junk room comes across a letter from Dr. Beckett Maxwell regarding information on her parents, Dahlia and Baudelaire Jasper. Pepper goes to see Dr. Maxwell and soon after arrival Dr. Maxwell is dead. How did he die? What is with the Aunts cat Hecate? Why did Lucas leave town? What assignment was he on? Could Pepper's friend Linda help her solve the mystery?
When she gets back to Mugwort Manor, Lucas needs to talk to her right away. He tells her that he has to leave on official cleaner business, and gives her a special phone for him to contact her. He tells her he will take care of the business of the murdered man when he gets back. The aunts however feel immediate investigation and solving the murder is necessary.
Pepper's aunts are women you love yet are constantly annoyed with their actions. They basically make Pepper and friend Linda do all the sleuthing (read b&e, collecting hair samples, etc.) Linda is a little timid for a shifter wolf, but she goes with Pepper and supports her efforts at least! And Lucas! He can't seem to say more than two words on a phone without being cut off! Of course these character flaws are avenues for Pepper to actually figure things out.
What a fun mystery with a special surprise about Hectate (the cat.) Being from the USA, I am learning many details of life in Australia, including native animals! Ms Best has a flair for dry wit in her characters and this makes them all the funnier.
You won't want to miss this fifth installment of Pepper, her aunts, and friends. I can't wait for the next book to be written now!
