The only barrier between Althea and marriage to Nicholas is her mother, who uses her ill-health to keep Althea a prisoner in their old London house. When Miss Silver is employed as a nurse for the old lady she's welcomed with open arms. But when two strangely competitive offers for the Grahams' house are made to her it suggests that the house may hold some dark rewarding secret. Then old Mrs Graham is found murdered in the gazebo and Althea is the prime suspect...it's a good job Miss Silver is there to help.
