So when the buxom Anna McCauley begs Lessie to help disguise the fact that one of her clients has passed away in her bed, Lessie is more than reluctant to get involved.

And also with the family of her deceased client who, it turns out, is none other than Frank Warren, the prosperous sugar refinery owner whose nephew Andrew is one of the most attractive and powerful men on Clydeside.
