"The late Octavia Garamond's last wishes were very odd indeed. Her request for a police presence at her funeral bothers Inspector C. D. Sloane, but not nearly as much as her insistence that her body be thoroughly examined after death. Amelia Kennerly is worried, too, when her holiday is interrupted by the news that she has been appointed executrix for a great-aunt she only met once. Now she is in charge of executing a number of inconvenient requests from her late Aunt Octavia." "But when Octavia Garamond's house is broken into and her papers ransacked, it begins to occur to all concerned that perhaps her written requests were not simply the ramblings of a senile old lady, but the actions of a woman in fear of her life. Inspector Sloane, aided (as it were) by Constable Crosby, finds himself facing an inexplicable puzzle. Who would want to harm a quiet eighty-year-old woman? He must dig deep into Garamond's past, both personal and professional, to uncover the key to a long-kept secret and reveal the sinister truth behind her tragic death." "With Aird's characteristic charm and wit. A Going Concern is a delightful welcome back for Inspector C. D. Sloan."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
