Summary
Life for the residents and servants of Hexam Place appears placid and orderly on the outside: drivers take their employers to and from work, dogs are walked, flowers are planted in gardens, and Christmas candles lit uniformly in windows. But beneath this tranquil veneer, the upstairs-downstairs relationships are set to combust. Henry, the handsome valet to Lord Studley, is sleeping with both the Lord{u2019}s wife and his university-age daughter. Montserrat, the Still family{u2019}s lazy au pair, assists Mrs. Still in keeping secret her illicit affair with a television actor{u2014}in exchange for pocket cash. June, the haughty housekeeper to a princess of dubious origin, tries to enlist her fellow house-helpers into a <U+00d4>ßĐsociety<U+00d4>ß<U+00d8> to address complaints about their employers. Meanwhile, Dex, the disturbed gardener to several families on the block, thinks a voice on his cell phone is giving him godlike instructions{u2014}commands that could imperil the lives of all those in Hexam Place
