More > London. But, Lady Victoria Camden passed away at the age of sixty on April 20,2006. Lanark Manor ceased to be filled with laughter.

It would up to Detective Cheerie of Scotland Yard (large male cream colored cat) to discover the truth about the face! **Fifty-ninth book in the series.** Watch for new books.< Less
