Not only does Penn want to renew contact with a relative not seen since childhood, but she is also looking for help with the disappearance of Justine, another cousin.

interesting who dunit with a great twist at the end

I was expecting a very engrossing English countryside mystery with individual characters, radiating both public and private eccentricities. Instead i got a gallery of participants, who were both unappealing and self absorbed. Drew Slocombe, the undertaker and his wife, Karen, were the most congenial but the rest of the distant relatives were catty, indifferent and basically radiated an undisguised loathing for each other. Penn Slabinski was a flighty, distant in searching for another cousin, Justine, who vanished while employed at a working farm, devastated by mad cow disease. The owners of the farm are a married couple inconstant turmoil,who have a child which neither really wanted. Compound this plot when the child of the farm couple is found dead in a ditch and you have a murky potpourri of discord, recrimination and epidemic dysfunction. The entire cast was not pleasant or redemptive enough for me to care about to any great extent. The Cotswold series was more entertaining for me.

Drew Slocombe is an undertaker who does natural burials behind his house which is situated on ten acres of land. He also has a local and national reputation as an amateur sleuth because he solved some murder investigations. Perhaps that is why his wife's cousin Penn comes to him when her cousin Justine Pereira turns up missing. Justine is living on Penn and Sheena's farm baby sitting their daughter Georgia in exchange for reduced rent and a barn to do her pottery.

Justine was supposed to meet Pen for lunch but never showed up and her search of Justine's house made her think that Justine left in a hurry. Pen becomes interested in the case and with his work assistant Maggs Beacon searches the house and finds enough evidence to report Justine's disappearance to Detective Sargent Pen Cooper. The plot thickens when Justine shows up at her mother Roma's house saying Pen kidnapped her and the body of Georgia is found in a ditch on the Renton farm. Penn disappears leaving everyone to wonder what was really going on at the Renton farm.
