Summary:

Beryl Helliwell cited for 'reckless' motoring? Why, the very idea! Constable Gibbs just has it in for her. The solution? Charm the magistrate, of course. Beryl and Edwina pay a visit to the magistrate only to find his home ransacked and the man himself lying dead at the bottom of a grand staircase. Declan O'Shea, who assists Beryl's aged gardener Simpkins, falls under suspicion after having had his own run-in with the magistrate - mostly, Beryl believes, because he's Irish. Meanwhile, census reports have gone missing. Is someone trying to hide something from the census takers - and could that theft have anything to do with the magistrate's death? -- adapted from jacket.
