Synopsis: Book by Sherwood, John

From Publishers Weekly: Celia Grant, the diminutive, white-haired heroine of Sherwood's horticultural mysteries ( Flowers of Evil ), is facing financial ruin because a new commercial garden center is taking business away from Archerscroft, her nursery, in this lively and enjoyable addition to the series. Hoping to earn a hefty fee, she agrees to work for Victor Stratton, a man fanatically devoted to Shakespeare and anything Elizabethan. But the disreputable Strattons--who while away their time with blackmail, conspiracy and theft--are involved in the sordid death of a rapist. When Celia decides to abandon her effort, the abrasive and obsessive Inspector Porter persuades her to carry on, "committing herself to constructing a fake Elizabethan garden in the worst of taste for a half-made client she dislikes" in order to confound an international drug cartel. She finally manages to cough up a little sympathy for the despised Victor, whose family would like him to "preside over an under-funded charity for the benefit of decrepit donkeys." Wrongheaded and unscrupulous as they may be, the police provide some help as Celia solves the mystery. Footnotes, horticultural history and humor embellish the tale, which is, however, brought to a somewhat hasty conclusion.
