A Sticky Wicket: An Embarrassing Problem or Situationby John Kemp
Corrie soon suspects one of the residents
The retirement community of Oxbridge Estate is slam-bang in the middle of Dudberry, England, but life on its premises is just a tad askew. New resident, Corrie Flowers, has returned to England after many years living on a Dude ranch. She has linked up with the cultured, cricket-loving, hermit-like Scotsman, Jim McPhail.
Corrie soon suspects one of the residents may be a member of the old "Johnny Hibiscus" gang, a group of gentlemen crooks responsible for a daring crime nearly forty years earlier. After all, she reasons; even criminals have to retire.
Corrie and Jim investigate the mix of odd bods, misfits and quirky residents that constitute the denizens of Oxbridge. Their sleuthing mishaps include arthritic bouts of breaking and entering, senior moments with regard to crucial evidence, and investigations constantly interrupted by unscheduled sleep.
Readers will discover the answers, as they smile at the twists and turns of Corrie and Jim and the other lovable characters of Oxbridge Estate, and their attempts to resolve the long-forgotten past with the realities of the present.
