  • Everyone in her village thinks nosy spinster Helga Allowby is sending noxious poison pen letters. Some recipients move out of the village, one man attempts suicide, and mistrust pervades the village. Helga wants Hetty to prove her innocence, so she comes undercover as Tara Hall, a visiting painter and asks Helga to send her similar letters to lower the villagers' suspicions. Meanwhile Robert and Geoffrey take a case on their own: checking out the fiancée of an older rich man. They set a trap for her with a handsome friend of Geoffrey's--will she or won't she? Hetty begins to think Helga IS the author of the letters, but there may be another candidate, even more unlikely.

  • Whe a malicious poison pen writer targets both new and old residents of a small village, the prime suspect hires Hetty to find the real writer.
