Mrs Harms-Beetle is a character in Making Money who lives in Welcome Soap and is the best friend of Mrs Evadne Cake, who sometimes stays over.

Her role in the scheme of things is that she indirectly facilitates an assassination attempt. It is interesting and educative to know that even the coolest and most professional Assassin will shrink from committing an inhumation on one of Mrs Cake's lodgers, until he is absolutely assured that she won't be in the house when he makes the attempt... knowing she is visiting Mrs Harms-Beetle, he considers this is the green light to go ahead.
