Mrs Maginnes is Dead

When Mrs Maginnes is thrown off a cliff near Edinburgh she leaves behind a million pounds worth of hidden Byzantine gold to whoever finds it, a rampaging goat, and a student tenant just arrived from sunny Portugal. Socorro, the tenant, finds refuge with the goat-gifted Aspenall sisters.  They, sadly, happen to be prime suspects in Mrs Maginnes’s murder.  However, this fact does not stop them from trying to find the gold themselves by contracting a fortune teller, setting the goat lose in downtown Edinburgh, and falling in with Marxist transvestites and Shakespearian passport forgers. Detective James Valour finds his attempts to solve the crime impeded by the sister’s irreverence and the fact that the entire town is looking for the gold as well.
