It seemed the perfect way to avoid three million in taxes on a five-million-pound estate: change the trust arrangement. Everyone in the family agreed to support the heiress, ravishing raven-haired Camilla Galloway, in her court petition -- except dreary Cousin Deirdre, who suddenly demanded a small fortune for her signature. Then Deirdre had a terrible accident. That was when the young London barristers handling the trust -- Cantrip, Selena, Timothy, Ragwort, and Julia -- summoned their Oxford friend Professor Hilary Tamar to Lincoln's Inn. Julia thinks it's murder. Hilary demurs. Why didn't the heiress die? But when the accidents escalate and they learn of the naked lunch at Uncle Rupert's, Hilary the Scholar embarks on the most perilous quest of all: the truth....

Sarah Caudwell is also the author of Thus Was Adonis Murdered, The Shortest Way to Hades, and The Sirens Sang of Murder. She studied law at St. Anne's College, Oxford, was called to the Chancery Bar, and practiced as a barrister for several years in Lincoln's Inn. She then became a member of the legal section of a major London bank, where she found herself specializing in international tax planning. Sarah Caudwell died in January 2000.From AudioFile:
In the midst of a legal wrangle among heirs, the single dissenter winds up dead. Did the dreary young woman fall off a roof, or was she pushed? To find out, the stuffy solicitors of said heirs engage an Oxford don, Professor Hillary Tamor, to ferret out the truth. The good professor, as interpreted by Eva Haddon, details the matter with keen observation, wit, and grace. Both author and narrator provide vivid characterization and ample humor, if not much suspense. An irritating distortion mars even moderately loud passages throughout.
