From the back of the book:
"Asey Mayo stories are always full of salty flavor with corking characters. More dectective stories should be like those of Phoebe Atwood Taylor." New York Herald Tribune
East Weesit had been down on hard timws until prosperity arrived one foggy day in the form of millionaire baker Phineas Banbury. The townfolk should have been grateful for his benevolence, but something was wrong. Someone wanted to damage him enough to poison all the tarts he had made for the church benefit. Then someone tried to make Banbury look guilty for the murder of selectman Abner Grove, found drowned on dry land. It was time to call in Asey Mayo.
Thought this was a great book...another good mystery.
