The Miller-Croft family, much respected in and around London and further afield in the market town of Meadowbank where the matriarch, Catherine Miller-Croft, had made her home for over forty years, but like many families, the Miller-Crofts had their secrets. With the grim discovery of the body of Catherine's step-daughter, those previously closely guarded secrets were soon to be exposed and become front-page news.
Chief Inspector Brenda Masters and Inspector Ian Ash found themselves confronted with not only solving what was being described by the press as the 'Miller-Croft Murders', but to unravelling the complexities of Catherine's extended family.
Greed and personal revenge vied for prominence, disrupting the daily lives of the residents and creating a feeling of unease as one shocking event followed another, culminating in a way no-one had expected, even beyond the fertile imaginations of The Market Inn's regulars. Meadowbank was once more headline news; the unwanted publicity adversely affecting the enviable lifestyle of the Miller-Croft family.
