⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Some antiques can be real gems. ENJOY!” Paul J., Netgalley

The Irving retirement home for actors in their twilight years is never short of drama.

Not least when legendary thespian Sir Frank Taylor is discovered dead in his bloodstained bed. A Nazi dagger plunged deep in his chest.

Sir Frank was once England’s most dazzling leading man, but someone is clearly not a fan.

Detectives French and Edwards are called to the home to investigate. And soon find out the star of the stage was hiding a shocking secret he never wanted his public to know.

The residents at the Irving are now living in perpetual fear. Who will be next?

The race is on to uncover the truth before the killer strikes again.

A victim who thought he could outrun his past.
A killer who’ll never forget.
Two detectives determined to find the truth.

THE SETTING
Oldminster is a city with a past and an ancient cathedral at its heart. Visit the twisty maze-like streets of the old quarter, and prepare to fall in love. But cross over the river — to the seamy side of town — and you’ll discover a secret side to this picture-perfect little place. Oldminster might seem like a place for summer rain and golden sunsets, but like Miss Marple’s village, it’s cram-full of wickedness.

THE DETECTIVES
DS Glyn Edwards
Thirty-something DS Edwards lives with his wife Sandra, but his home life is anything but blissful. Is his career about to cost him his marriage? Or can he find a way to reconcile the two? Either way, Glyn is a very hands-on detective who never gives up on a case. He works hand-in-glove with his superior officer . . .

DI Paul French
Redoubtable Detective French has always been a stickler for order, detail and procedure — until the arrival of his baby daughter late in his marriage to Moira turned his orderly world upside down. Still, he doesn’t suffer fools gladly, and is more than a match for certain prickly, well-to-do residents of Oldminster.
