Her services are needed however, by Daisy, schoolmate and president of their detective society, Wells & Wong. It seems that Hazel is Vice-President, Secretary, and our narrator, to this claustrophobic mystery, Arsenic for Te‘ in Daisy’s stately home, where all sorts of secrets and silver teaspoons lie waiting to be unearthed.
