In this episode of the tales of Miss Seeton, we find a rash of busjackings and home invasion robberies. The police are perplexed; the villagers are upset. The village gossip machine is working overtime, fueled in large part by the duo known as The Nuts. Often a side note in previous books they get the attention they so richly earned in this one–but not quite in the ways they had hoped for.
Miss Seeton’s unique sketching abilities are called upon but the results appear disappointing both to the police and to the lady herself. The mysterious trio responsible for both bus holdups and home invasions continue their activities, gaining confidence with the continued success of their labors.
But in the end, villainous overconfidence meets Miss Seeton and her brolly. Guess who wins?
Once again, a delightful read.
