Answering the call, Johnny responds to a jewel theft in England. The historic establishment, Hachett House, is the focal point of where the tourists lost their diamonds. Maids, gardeners, ivy covered cottages, and butlers all portray a pastoral setting, but a tale of unhappiness and rivalry is soon to emerge. The dirt is dished out for Johnny, complete with slimy leeches, and drunken parties.
Hatred, envy, broken friendships, and betrayal. What does it all mean for the stolen jewels? Is it connected at all? How about a marriage for money and not love?
With all those suspicious characters, the situation is ripe to step the crime up a notch. Juicy scandal, but very stupid, especially when its right under the noses of Scotland Yard, and Johnny Dollar. A body is found, but will there be more before Johnny can guess who it is?
