Sinopsis:

Cassie Swann spends the evening of Lady Portia Wickham's murder at Halkham Court, taking part in a high-stakes bridge game hosted by Portia's husband, Lord Wickham.
Although the two women never actually meet, Cassie feels an instant rapport with the Rubenesque Portia. Judging from her portrait - and the all-too-evident devotion of her charming young butler, Jamie - Portia was not a woman to deny herself any of life's pleasures.
In fact, as a result of the ungentlemanly behavior of Cassie's partner, the socially ambitious Royston Chilcott, she is the first to discover Portia's body in the driveway - albeit without realizing it at the time. (As she exasperatedly explains to the police, it was dark, windy, and pouring rain - not ideal conditions for detecting a body, even if you do happen to trip over it.)
Although Inspector Manntrip and the handsome Sergeant Walsh have suspicions about the unlikely discoverer of the murder victim, they focus their attention elsewhere. When the hapless Jamie is arrested, Cassie's intuition tells her they have the wrong man.

From Publishers Weekly:

Moody plays a near perfect hand in the second adventure of bridge professional Cassandra Swann, introduced in Death Takes a Hand. Cassie, who teaches a weekly bridge class at a local prison, is hired by wealthy, social-climbing Londoner Royston Chilcott as his partner for a game at the home of Sir Peter Aubrey. They lose the last high-stakes rubber, and on the way home Chilcott turns suddenly vindictive and forces Cassie from his car. After stumbling along the rain-soaked road back to Aubrey's, she calls a friend for a ride home, learning only the next day that she had tripped over the murdered body of Lady Portia, Sir Peter's wife. Cassie gets to know Detective Sergeant Walsh when the police question her about Lady Portia's death, but it isn't until one of her bridge nights at the prison that she is pointed toward Lady Portia's killer and the reason she was killed. Earthy Cassie, with her wry sense of humor and her lust for life, has a powerful appeal that extends beyond bridge-playing mystery readers. Paperback rights to Berkley.
