Those sassy—but financially strapped—Blackbird sisters are back! Sensible Nora, very pregnant Emma and impulsive Libby are devastated by the demise of their globetrotting great aunt, Madeleine, in an Indonesian volcano eruption. Grief turns to relief when they learn they’ve inherited Madeleine’s palatial country mansion. But the house is crumbling, the valuables have vanished and there’s a skeleton in the elevator.
The housekeeper, Pippi, claims to know nothing; Madeleine’s lawyer, Groatley, isn’t bursting with info either. And Madcap Maddy’s stepson, Sutherland, just wants his cut of the estate. When the corpse, volcano notwithstanding, turns out to be Madeleine’s, can the Blackbirds solve the mystery before the culprit takes wing?
