Description

'I'm twenty-eight. I'm a freelance TV researcher. And last November I investigated my first murder . . .'

Alex Tanner is always on the lookout for work - mortgages on flats in Notting Hill don't come cheap, after all. So when TV producer Barty O'Neill mentions a particularly juicy assignment she jumps at the chance.

Barty has been asked to investigate the shooting of Lord Sherwin, a famous society murder of the 1950s. Although suspicion quickly fell on Sherwin's beautiful wife Laura the case has stubbornly remained unsolved. However Barty has a contact - Miss Potter, once governess to the Sherwin children - who is now ready to tell her story . . .

And Alex is poised to uncover the truth behind a terrible secret kept hidden for over thirty years . . .

Review quote

A book to gulp down in one sitting . . . The sparkling writing and immediacy of the characterization plus a gripping mystery raise this well above the average detective novel * Sunday Telegraph * One of my top ten crime novels for 1992 -- Gerald Kaufman * Scotland on Sunday *
