The year is 1947. Kindly, unassuming widow Dorrie Resterick continually finds herself confidante to others' troubles. She would prefer to keep in the background, but life throws her many a mystery, and once she even found a scrap of evidence in a dreadful local crime - the double murder of two villagers.
While the police decided the scrap of paper Dorrie brought to them solved the case, Dorrie was never sure - and when new tenants arrive at the long-abandoned creepy cottage of Merrivale, the site of the murders, their actions inadvertently plunge the whole village into danger.
Well, at least it was cheap. The best thing about this audiobook was the narrator. The story dithers along without ever really solving what you assume will be the primary mystery. My mind wandered away a lot of the time, because it's just a really boring story. It was "forgettable".
