Publisher's Summary

Jude has never been averse to a bit of a flutter; her friend Carole, on the other hand, thinks that the local betting shop is a den of iniquity. But when Jude stumbles upon the body of a Polish immigrant, Tadeusz Jankowski, the race is on to find his killer. 

The odds aren’t looking good. No one seems to know anything about the mysterious Tadeusz - even his sister can’t shed any light on what he was doing in Fethering. As they question the local residents, Carole finds an unexpected friend in an inveterate gambler, and Jude finds herself in potential trouble with a lecherous and charming drama professor.

One of the best!

I have listened to all of the books in this series and have enjoyed them all. This one, I felt, was one of the best and had lots of twists in the plot which made it very entertaining to follow. Mr Brett not only has a very perceptive understanding of women, their feelings and their relationships but also reads it beautifully and I could not now imagine anyone else doing so. Looking forward to the next one!

Classic Brett

Another lovely, dare I say, cosy, Fethering mystery. I love the two leading characters. I find it completely addictive listening. Great story, and as always,great read by the author.

Darker than usual

However, despite its themes, was in keeping with the excellence of the rest of the series so far. A Simon Brett day is a good day!

Another winner!

More entertainment from Feathering when Carole and Jude solve another murder in the quiet south coast town and more local characters are introduced
