The people of Tamarisk Bay are learning to deal with tragedy. It is one year after the start of the Second World War and coastal communities are having to cope with relentless German bombings. Hardship is affecting families on every level, from food rationing to clothing shortages.

Everyone is trying their best to make do. Then an item of clothing turns up in the Latimer household, just a short time after a gentleman's outfitters is bombed. Nearby towns and cities are experiencing looting on a grand scale and there is talk of severe punishments being handed out - a lifetime in prison; maybe even hanging.

Has a crime been committed? Can Sgt Snow root out the truth before the close community of Tamarisk Bay is split apart with suspicion and accusations?


'This was a great find. A librarian turns to sleuthing in 1960s England. Janie Juke, an Agatha Christie enthusiast, is a very likeable protagonist. A real page turner. I've already bought the next book in the series... hoping there will be many more to come.'

'I got straight into the story ... I really like the way the author depicted the 60s ...I felt as if I was there '

'Intriguing detective story with lovely period setting and interesting characters. I'm looking forward to seeing what Janie Juke solves next.'

'Loved every page and didn't want to put it down. Can't wait until the next one in the series.'

'Thoroughly enjoyable book. Kept me interested till the end. Looking forward to the next one.'

'The glimpses into WW2 are particularly good. Solid writing, great story, and Janie as a character is growing on me. I hope there are more in the series.'
