'Ibbley, obbley, onker, my first conker!' The ancient warcry of English conker battles heralds autumn in the Kentish countryside, where Plummergen, Miss Seeton's home village, and its great rival Murreystone, are holding their Produce Show and this year impromptu fisticuffs! Plus it's Trafalgar Day, and at Admiral Buzzard's 'gin pennant' party for local ex-officers there's another near punch-up. Altogether a riveting backdrop for the presenters of a popular TV cookery show, visiting in search of rare heritage apples like the Plummergen Peculier.

Only the police have time to notice the worsening local crime wave antique shops ramraided, homes robbed, then a life lost until Miss Seeton is coaxed into playing a core role. Serene amidst every kind of skullduggery, this eccentric English spinster steps in where Scotland Yard stumbles, armed with nothing more than her sketchpad and umbrella! AUTHOR: Heron Carvic (1913-1980) was an actor and writer, most recognisable today for his voice portrayal of the character Gandalf in the first BBC Radio broadcast version of The Hobbit. He started writing the Miss Seeton novels in the 1960s, after using her in a short story. He later recalled that "Miss Seeton upped and demanded a book".

The classic series of humorous cosy mysteries. "A most beguiling protagonist!" - New York Times "This is not so much black comedy as black-currant comedy ... You can't stop reading. Or laughing." - The Sun
