Description

Newspaper reporter and mother of three, Lucy Stone, jumps at the chance of a girls' trip to London - it's an opportunity to take a break from her busy family life in the small town of Tinker's Cove, Maine. But when her tour leader, Professor Temple, dies mid-flight, Lucy's glad she packed her sleuthing skills . . .

And things don't get any easier when they land. Professor Quentin Rea, a ladies' man and former flirt of Lucy's, arrives to take over the tour and she finds that, while his hairline has receded, his amorous intentions have not. Lucy also begins to notice some peculiar behaviour among other members of the group, and when she discovers all of them have pasts connected to the late Professor Temple, she suspects his death was an elaborate act of revenge. Then another tour member dies, and Lucy is suddenly ensnared in a daring scheme that could lead her to the mastermind of the murders - or make her the next victim. . .

Deaths and mysteries abound in this cozy English outing from New York Times bestseller Leslie Meier.

About Leslie Meier

Leslie Meier is the author of over twenty Lucy Stone mysteries. Her books are inspired by her own family life - she has three children - and she worked as a reporter for a number of local newspapers near her home in Cape Cod, USA.
As Leslie's own children have grown up, so have Lucy's, and Leslie has a keen eye for the day-to-day life of small-town America. Perceptive and cleverly plotted, her books never fail to entertain.
