Who would dream that a chance encounter on a city bus could lead an
innocent young woman into a nightmare of mystery, intrigue, and
even murder? But that's exactly what happens when Cathy Carter, the
artistic wife of Detective Inspector Neil Carter of Scotland Yard,
boards a crowded London bus and takes a seat next to a sweet old
woman named Mrs Willoughby. As the streets breeze by, the two women
get to chatting and become fast friends. After Cathy breathlessly
reveals the wonderful news of her first pregnancy, Mrs Willoughby,
a dressmaker and clairvoyant, offers to make her a maternity
wardrobe and read her future. In return, Cathy will paint the
woman's portrait. It is a friendly and seemingly innocuous
arrangement until the day Cathy stops by the dressmaker's studio
for a fitting and finds that someone has made a very permanent,
brutal alteration on Mrs Willoughby herself! Suddenly the young
mother-to-be finds herself under suspicion for murder, and her
husband, whose temper has just suspended him from the force, begins
his own private investigation, and unconventional bit of sleuthing
that bring startling - and very deadly - results.
