Overview
Mrs Pargeter discovers the skills by which Public Relations can make evil look good in the latest wickedly entertaining mystery.

It is her characteristic generosity rather than her love of animals that finds Mrs Pargeter supporting her friend, Jasmine Angold, at a charity reception for PhiliPussies, whose worthy aim is to rehabilitate stray cats from the Greek island of Atmos into caring English homes. But the evening is to have unexpected consequences. At the event, Mrs P is taken aback to meet a woman who claims to be the sister of her late husband, the much-missed Mr Pargeter.

This surprising encounter leads to unwelcome digging into past secrets, the discovery of a body in Epping Forest, an eventful trip to Greece - and unexpected danger for Mrs Pargeter. In the course of her investigations, she learns the true nature of charity and the dubious skills by which Public Relations can make evil look good.

In Bretts sprightly eighth outing for Mrs. Pargeter (after 2015s Mrs. Pargeters Principle), the shrewd but always ladylike Melita Pargeter professes to know little of what the late Mr. Lionel Pargeter did to earn his money (He was always a great believer in the principle of need to know. So what you didnt need to know you didnt know. That way you could never be made to stand up in court and talk about it). At an auction gala in London for PhiliPussies, a charity that finds homes for feral Greek cats in Britain, she meets Rochelle Brighouse, Lionels sister, whose existence he never mentioned, and Rochelles son, Haydon, a true-crime writer. Within a few days, Mr. Pargeters little black book of business contacts goes missing, and a member of the PhiliPussies society turns up in a shallow grave in Epping Forest. These events set Mrs. Pargeters investigative antennae tingling. With the aid of some of her husbands former employees, she sets off to track down a thief. Mystery fans seeking pure escapist fun will be rewarded. (Mar.)
