The Brewster twins, Lily and Robert, are always willing to help out an old friend. So when Miss Twibell, the owner of a local nursing home, is short staffed, they agree to fill in and lend a hand. The home is full of colorful characters, including a cantankerous old man named Sean Conner, the only patient who is seriously ill. But the very day the Brewsters arrive, he slips into a coma and passes away. While his grave illness would seem the likely cause of death, it soon comes to light that he’s been murdered! The old man wasn’t well liked, but who would bother murder him when he has so little time left? And Mr. Conner isn’t the only victim in town. Over the winter, a young man went missing and was presumed dead, though no body was found. Now the spring sun has melted the ice and his body has surfaced. With multiple murders plaguing the community, Robert and Lily are more committed than ever to helping the police find a cold-blooded criminal before he strikes again.
