Mrs. Pargeter's Package (Mrs. Pargeter, Bk 3)
Mrs Pargeter's Package - Mrs. Pargeter, Bk 3 Author:Simon Brett Mrs. Pargeter returns. Readers everywhere will welcome the witty, wise, and resourceful lady whose widowhood from the well-connected but certainly unconventional Mr. Pargeter prompted new career in sleuthing. Sleuth she may be, and a particularly good one at that-with the help of some of her late husband's shady friends-but at the moment she... more »'s looking forward to a glorious holiday on the beautiful Greek island of Corfu. Or perhaps not so glorious, as Melita Pargeter's traveling companion has made the arrangements for the two-week package tour, and her standards don't quite meet Mrs. P.'s luxury expectations.
Still, Corfu, with its seafront tavernas, its sunlit villas and dramatic coastline is one of the most beautiful places on earth. The setting alone guarantees a holiday to remember.
Just how memorable, however, is a surprise even to Mrs. Pargeter. When the recently widowed Joyce Dover asks Mrs. Pargeter to carry through customs a package that sounds suspiciously like liquid, Mrs. Pargeter agrees. It's peculiar, though, that Joyce would import into Greece a bottle of ouzo. It's not exactly a rare or expensive Greek beverage. Mrs. Pargeter wonders if Joyce may be hiding something, And why is Joyce so strangely nervous? Mrs. Pargeter soon discovers that the carefree tourist facade in the little village of Agios Nikitas masks a reality of shocking secrets and proud defiance.« less
