Also attending as a guest speaker is her boyfriend, DCI Gareth Davies, there to give a talk on theft prevention.

When the bishop's secretary dies of a suspicious case of food poisoning, Davies leads the investigation. At Penny's suggestion, Florence Semble, a friend from Penny's adopted hometown, is invited to the Library to decode the secretary's shorthand notebook in the search for clues.
