She Had Expected an Heirloom but All She Got Was the Headache!
Wed and widowed four times, Lady Udora Middlesworth was quite certain she'd experienced all.
This became patently untrue as she was charged with the guardianship of The Thackery Jewels: Amythest, Emerald and Topaz, three of the mangiest mudlarks she'd ever beheld.
Too much of a handful, Udora decided to hire on Aaron Bently who had volunteered his help. Little was Udora to know that having done so, she had leapt from the fat into the fire!
