Even When Suzanne, his new wife, sweeps away every vestige of their mother, they arent alarmed.But then she not only banishes their beloved old cats to a cattery but begins to control their father in a sinister way.Every time they see him he has become odder and more inaccessible.He eventually falls mysteriously ill, and they begin to suspect that Suzanne is trying to poison him with the help of the new doctor she has called in. It is clear that she intends to inherit Mill House and disinherit the daughters. The girls fear that Margots worst nightmare is coming true: she has dreamt that their father sold Mill House and sent them to live in a dank dark shed.But it is Suzanne who dies first, drowned in her bath, after mixing drugs with alcohol. However, her sister from Arizona, who has come to share the spoils with her, still hopes to drive the daughters out if only their father dies soon enough.DI McGill realises that Suzannes death is not an accident, and her sister, supported by her attendant attorney, accuses Margot and Lucy of murder. DI MsGill finds the solution in Suzannes and her sisters past in America, where they moved as GI brides. He manages to wind up the case so that justice is served - in a subtle but unconventional way.
