Synopsis

The holiday season brings a mix of merriment, mayhem, and murder. And it falls to Inspector Witherspoon—with a significant portion of help from the ever-watchful Mrs. Jeffries—to find the culprit… THE BUSINESS OF DEATH Orlando Edison is a stockbroker using London’s infatuation with foreign mining ventures to make a fortune. He has curried favor with the nation’s most respected aristocrats, even inviting three of the most influential investors in England—known as the Merry Gentlemen—to be part of his latest enterprise. Despite his mysterious past, Edison is now welcomed in the highest circles and moves with ease among the rich and powerful. Yet a few days before Christmas, he is found sprawled across his doorstep, murdered. Charismatic and charming, Edison was kind to his servants and generous with his friends. Why would someone want him dead? Inspector Witherspoon and his household are all looking forward to the festive season. Witherspoon is eager to spend time with his godchild. Wiggins, the footman, is infatuated with football and would rather cheer goals than chase down clues. And Mrs. Goodge longs to bake recipes from the latest cookbooks. But they all know their duty, and led by the intrepid Mrs. Jeffries, they plan to see justice served for the holidays….

Terms of Sale

Paper Time Machines

30 day return guarantee, with full refund including original shipping costs for up to 30 days after delivery if an item arrives "not-as-described" or damaged.

Basic SHIPPING COSTS are based on the Postal Rates set Media Mail postal fees by the United States Postal Service pricing matrix, as well as the average book size and weight. As most of us know, book sizes and weights vary greatly. In the case where the shipping costs vary greatly from our Shipping Fee Matrix, the remaining fees have been included in the cost of the book. There are a few rare examples where additional fees may be added to your invoice. These cases are pointed out of the page related to said book.

However, not all is bad news, as a former purchasing manager, I can never forget my bosses mantra, "Consolidate your orders to save on shipping". In the case where the actual shipping cost is much lower, due to low weight or because the combined weight of multiple purchases allow for a more economical rate or shipping class. For example, USPS offers several FLAT RATE Priority Mail packages. This method will often same money when purchasing several heavy items such as books. We invite you to request a guaranteed/no obligation shipping price quote.
