The Cat and the Corpse in the Old Barn

Clarice Beech has two passions in life, animal rescue and Detective Inspector Rick Beech. She is devoted to the first but she and Rick have been separated for the past six months – life without him is hard.

Clarice shares her other love, for contemporary ceramics, with the charming Lady Vita Fayrepoynt.
