Poor Harriet: Marianne knows that the business she works for is in trouble, so she isn't surprised when the owner's wife, Irma, asks her to do a little favor for her-take her diamond bracelet to a man who will give her money for it. But when she confronts Mr. Moran, he seems a bit shifty to her. And Moran's wife, Harriet, seems to be an even odder character. After leaving, Marianne discovers that one of them stole the bracelet from her, so she returns and confronts Moran. He takes her to Harriet, and all seems well when she gets the bracelet back. But Moran decides that the bracelet should be his after all-he knows Irma all too well, and figures she owes him a diamond bracelet at least. Now it's Harriet's job to get it back.
The silent cousin: Dr. Paul Potter has come back to Long Acre, back to his cousins Millicent and Louise, back to Aunt Cora and MacDonald. Back to the family estate, where nothing has changed. But this time, there is a death. Mrs. MacDonald is found halfway across her room, dead on the floor. And later, Uncle Humphrey drowns in his fishing pond. Change is in the air. But is it a change that the cousins can control? Millicent has some definite ideas about what needs to happen to the estate, but now they have been "invaded" by a young outsider, the son of the other half of the family, who has some ideas of his own. Paul feels the world shifting about him. Old passions rise back to the surface. Change may come to Long Acre, but it brings with it--death.
