Isabel Dalhousie, philosopher and amateur solver of other people's problems, meets an old foe, Minty Auchterlonie, at a birthday party attended by their young children. Ambitious Minty, now the head of a small investment bank, is in trouble with her shareholders. Isabel becomes involved, and is drawn into a murky world of financial concealment.
Minty is not the only high-flier in Isabel's life; her niece Cat has just become engaged to a tightrope-walking stuntman. Isabel fears his next job - and the engagement - could end in disaster. Meanwhile, her own boyfriend, Jamie, has marriage in mind too . . .

Sweet but shorter than expected
What's there is great, well written and narrated, but this seems to be an abridged version and cuts out some colour and subtelty. I often buy audio versions of books I have enjoyed (like this one) but don't much like abridged versions and like this to be indicated which it wasn't.
If it wasn't abridged I would have given a 5 star rating.
