Beth Haldane is on the verge of having everything she’s ever wanted. Her son is starting secondary school, her personal life seems to have settled down – even her pets are getting on better. But then the phone rings.


It’s Beth’s high maintenance mother, Wendy, with terrible news. Her bridge partner, Reggie Pole, has died suddenly. While Beth, and most of Dulwich, is convinced that Reggie has pegged out from exhaustion, thanks to playing with Wendy for years, Beth’s mother is certain that there is foul play afoot.


Before she knows it, Beth is plunged into her most complicated mystery yet, involving the Dulwich Bridge Club, allotment holders, the Dulwich Open Garden set and, of course, her long-suffering boyfriend, Metropolitan Police Detective Inspector Harry York. The case stirs up old wounds which are much closer to home than Beth would like. Can she come up trumps in time to stop the murderer striking again, or does the murderer hold the winning hand this time?

Temporary Blurb, subject to change
