Now that Dorothy is out of the way, Cressida employs a French Chef on the advice of Lord Farringdon alone. When a particularly untidy and rude builder is smothered by a mango, Mr. Buttons is discovered standing over the body. Instead of seeing Mr. Buttons as a murder suspect, the police believe he was the intended victim.
As the intrigue mounts, Blake tells Sibyl not to interfere. Sibyl soon realizes this is no ordinary murder case and that Mr. Buttons has been hiding secrets from them all.
