Brush with a Body - September 2006

A final climax leads to what momentarily appears to be a tragedy as trigger happy Uncle Harvey gets hold of the wrong end of the stick completely!

While Sybil Walling is paying one of her periodical visits to a friend in Scotland, her children call in the chimney-sweep, whose brushes dislodge not only soot but a body.

With a little blackmail the erudite sweep offers to remove the squatter but Henry is disturbed for he suspects that the body might be that of their father who vanished twenty years ago.
