Polly Giller has had the worst luck with finding a good custodian for Sycamore House and the murder of her latest employee draws even more attention to her propensity for finding dead bodies. Sheriff Aaron Merritt just assumes that when she calls him, it’s because she’s found someone. The pool at the Elevator expands as the locals lay odds on Polly’s next find. When Beryl Watson ends up in the hospital because of an explosion, the last thing she wants is to be a statistic in Polly’s life.
Sal Kahane, Polly’s college roommate and best friend from Boston, comes to Iowa to see what all the fuss is about at Sycamore House. The city girl has to keep an open mind in order to understand why her friend loves living among the cornfields. Polly’s relationship with Henry Sturtz, her contractor and friend, continues to grow. When he left town for a couple of months, she discovered how important he was.
