Summary

When old Eleanor Bridges dies on her birthday at The Laurels nursing home, no-one except her niece, Fran Castle, suspects anything. But when the will goes missing, and Fran's newly discovered relatives appear to be doing everything in their power to obstruct investigations, she enlists the help of her friend Libby Sarjeant. Together they uncover sinister happenings in the past - including greed and elements of witchcraft - that provide a host of motives for murder. But it isn't until a second body is discovered that the killer is unmasked.

Kept me awake until 2am!

Great book. No problem with the narrator here.
Was awake until 2am and after because I didn't want to miss what happened next.

Good book spoilt by the reader

This is only my 2nd Lesley Cookham and I am enjoying the stories but the voice of Julie Barnes for Libby is spoiling this book as she sounds like a whining 5 year old unlike Patience Townsend in Murder in Steeple Martin, my first Lesley Cookham.

A BORE

This is a very hard book to listen to. It drags and drags.
