Summary
Early April, 1933. To the costermongers of Covent Garden—peddlers selling fruit and vegetables on the streets of London—Eddie Pettit was kindness itself. A little "slow", he was a gentle soul, more boy than man, with a gift for calming the most challenging horse. His recent death in a violent accident has shocked his friends and neighbors. They believe Eddie was the victim of foul play, but the police won't investigate. Their only hope of finding the truth is Maisie Dobbs. Maisie has known these men from childhood when her father, Frankie, worked alongside them. Determined to do right by Eddie, she plunges into the investigation.
