Retired art teacher Miss Seeton steps in where Scotland Yard stumbles. Armed with only her sketch pad and umbrellya, she is every inch an eccentric English spinster and at ever turn the most lovable and unlikely master of detection.
The village of Plummergen is abuzz with excitement. A television crew has arrived in search of an apple--not just any apple, but the rare Plummergen Peculier, to be spotlighted in a special show on British food. At the same time, the police are on a search of their own for the elusive antique thieves who have burglarized a numer of houses--and murdered an innocent man in the process. In the middle of it all is Miss Seeton, who will trip up the troublemakers in her inimitable style-and quite unwittingly, become the apple of Scotland Yard's eye.
