The adventures of Isabel Dalhousie continue…

A Distant View of EverythingIsabel Dalhousie now has a second child – another boy, Magnus.

She discovers that Charlie is far from thrilled and he sees no need for a new baby. In Cat’s delicatessen, Isabel meets a woman with whom she had been at school. This woman, Bea Shand, is known as an enthusiastic match-maker.

She is very worried, though, as she has introduced a woman she knows to a plastic surgeon that is now described by another friend as a gold-digger. This other friend reveals that the surgeon has a bad track record: he has been involved with a series of well-off women and has succeeded in separating a number of them from their money.

Bea asks Isabel to investigate; she herself tried to warn her friend of the danger she was in but was rebuked badly. Not only is the surgeon innocent, but he himself is the one in danger!
