This fiction introduces readers to Mrs. Shruggs, an old lady who enjoys blabbing stories or gossip to anyone, and Valerie Carr, a young woman who recently lost her husband on a vehicular accident. Both widows embark on a journey from Los Angeles to England, where Mrs. Shruggs’s godson, Christian, lives. Valerie is apprehensive to go to Cheese Nab since Mrs. Shrugg is not quite sure if Christian, whom she has not seen for the past forty years, would recognize or welcome her. On their train ride towards Cheese Nab, Mrs. Shruggs falls dead under the suspicion of being poisoned, leaving Valerie on her own. Fortunately, one of the passengers, Dr. French, who happens to be a good friend of Christian, is around to help her with the situation. Mrs. Shruggs has no next of kin, so Valerie decides to take responsibility of the funeral arrangements if Christian doesn’t want to. When they finally arrive at Cheese Nab, unexpected events are about to unravel.
