From the author of the Inspector Morse series, a short story about a freelance investigator and what should be a simple case. Mrs. Isobel Rodgers is an investigator’s perfect client: beautiful, wealthy, and offering a straightfoward assignment. Mrs. Rodgers suspects her husband of an affair, and it’s up to the investigator to determine the object of Mr. Rodger’s affections. For someone with brilliant deductive powers, this should be an open-and-shut case-but Mrs. Rodgers may know more than she’s letting on.
