This is the 4th installment in the Marlow Murders series, and it won’t let you down. Suzie, Judith and Becks are now “official” liaisons for the police as they solve the mayor’s murder: poisoned with aconite, the queen of poisons, at a town council meeting. The trio sort through lots of quirky, seemingly guilty characters before figuring out the cross and double-cross that is a surprise.

— Ashby

The Marlow Murder Club is on the hunt for a killer...

Geoffrey Lushington, Mayor of Marlow, dies suddenly during a town council meeting. When traces of aconite—also known as the queen of poisons—are found in his coffee cup, the police realize he was murdered. But who did it? And why?

The police bring Judith, Suzie, and Becks in to investigate the murder as civilian advisors right from the start, so they have free rein to interview suspects and follow the evidence to their heart's content… which is perfect because Judith has no time for rules and standard procedure. But this case has the Marlow Murder Club stumped. Who would want to kill the affable mayor of Marlow? How did they even get the poison into his coffee? And is anyone else in danger? The Marlow Murder Club is about to face their most difficult case yet...

Robert Thorogood is an English screenwriter and novelist. He is the creator of the BBC One murder mystery series Death in Paradise.
