“This is the third book I’ve read in this detective series and the books keep getting better. This one starts with a train journey in Italy (very Patricia Highsmith) and has a distinctive Italian flavour to it which I loved. Why has Janie’s aunt suddenly returned from Italy? Who are all these Italians and what are they doing in this sleepy Sussex town? Will Janie Juke solve the crime before the police do? A fun read with great characters.”

Heartbreaking tragedy or cold-blooded murder

From a quiet English seaside town to the aftermath of war-torn Italy…

An Italian stranger arrives in Tamarisk Bay and brings with him mystery and intrigue…

It’s Easter 1970 in the seaside town of Tamarisk Bay. Amateur sleuth and professional librarian, Janie Juke, is settling into motherhood and some quality time with her family. When her Aunt Jessica is due back from Rome after nine years travelling around Europe, she arrives back in town with a new Italian friend, Luigi, and the whole family soon get embroiled in a tangle of mystery and suspicion, with death and passion at the heart of the story.

As time runs out on Luigi as prime suspect for murder, Janie has to use all of her powers of deduction in the footsteps of her hero, Hercule Poirot, to uncover the facts. Why did Luigi come to Tamarisk Bay? What is the truth about his family?

As Luigi’s story unfolds, tragedy seems to haunt the past, present and unless Janie acts fast, possibly what is yet to come.
