“This was a light and easy read where I got straight into the story. I really like the way the author depicted the 60s since I am too young enough to remember this era… but it is peppered with all sorts of nostalgia, the Beatles, the Vietnam War, not to mention colourful images of Woodstock and the hippie movement. I felt as if I was there!”

Sleuthing amid the highs and lows of 1960s England!

Sussex 1969. Young people are experiencing all the highs and lows of Britain’s swinging sixties – experimental fashion, ground-breaking music, illegal drugs and cheap alcohol.

All setting the scene for a young librarian with a passion for Agatha Christie to try to solve a murder…

Joel is killed in a hit and run accident. Twelve months later his girlfriend, Zara, goes missing. Is Zara in danger? Is she still alive? What really happened to Joel and who is to blame?

Time is ticking, as Janie finds out something about Zara’s past that makes the amateur sleuth fear for her friend’s life.

Janie fears her friend Zara may be mixed up with drugs, alcohol, or worse. As Janie explores the strange circumstances of Zara’s disappearance, she starts to question the truth about Joel’s death. The police are doing nothing to find Zara, so it falls to librarian, Janie Juke, to untangle the web of lies and uncover the truth. As she looks for clues Janie comes across some unsavoury characters who each have a reason for wanting Joel dead.
