At a bowls game Meg’s friend, Jack Spencer, drops dead. Retired detective Ross Delaney, their bowls partner, realises the bitter almonds smell indicates cyanide poisoning. He isn’t the only one who smells something unusual. The distinctive aroma of cigar smoke overwhelms Meg. She knows this is an indication of the killer, but can’t quite work out how.
Meg and Clyde begin investigating but feel hampered by dead ends. They volunteer with Meals on Wheels and again are confronted by a suspicious death.
When Meg continually smells cigar smoke around the bodies, she realises a cold-blooded killer is murdering the elderly and smoking a cigar to celebrate.
Then the vile killer extends his net, not only murdering the aged, but also including another of Meg’s beloved friends in his poisonous web.
The only clue is cigar smoke.
Is that enough for psychic Meg to track down the evil predator?
