Description: The village of Larking is one of those quiet small towns where everyone fancies they know everything about everyone else, especially quiet-living widows like Grace Jenkins, bringing up one daughter, now away at university. It’s so small that Harry Ford the postman does his round on a bicycle – and he’s grateful for it when he finds Mrs. Jenkins dead in the road not far from home, clearly a victim of a hit-and-run driver the previous night. But the formalities of a road traffic accident require a formal identification and an autopsy, so Henrietta is recalled from school to identify Grace Jenkins.
