‘Like Agatha Christie, Aird specialises in classic puzzles . . . Intricate , witty and thoroughly delightful’ Publishers Weekly
When the incessant mutterings of gravely ill Derek Tridgell culminate in a clear cry of foul murder, Detective Inspector Sloan and Detective Constable Crosby are brought in to investigate whether these are deathbed ramblings or revelations. They uncover three tragic deaths that may or may not be linked to Derek’s last words, including a fatal car accident from which his son Paul walked away unscathed.
With a tight-lipped Paul knowing more than he’s letting on, Sloan and Crosby have their work cut out if they’re ever going to untangle this complex case.
