Lulu Gold has just been stabbed and is hovering above the crime scene, feeling pretty pissed off. Her dead grandmother is beckoning furiously from the tunnel but Lulu's not going anywhere, thanks very much. Not until she uncovers who killed her and why... So begins the extraordinary story of one woman's quest to uncover the truth before she is dragged, kicking and screaming, to eternity fearing her beloved boy is a killer.
In this lightly written yet deeply moving DIY mystery, readers are given all the clues to solve a baffling crime. Why did Lulu see her 13-year-old's sneakers just seconds before she died? What has chocolate cake got to do with anything? And who—or what—is behind that evil presence lingering in the shadows?
From the best-selling author of The Agatha Christie Book Club, C.A. Larmer takes us on a drone's-eye view of the crime scene and a journey back through conflicting memories to uncover what really happened. Will the truth set Lulu's spirit free or destroy everything she ever knew about herself and her loved ones?
Sometimes hilarious, sometimes break-out-the-tissues sad, this story of love and loss shows us what it really means to love and how important it is to let go.
This stand-alone novel contains some Australian colloquialisms and a little adult language. No graphic violence or horror.
