Overview

They make an oddly effective team? Inspector Douglas Quantrill, an old-fashioned country copper, and his deputy, Martin Tait, stuffed with the latest in policing theories and techniques, and with a sharp eye for both the ladies and the main chance. That eye gets wider when Quantrill's young daughter comes home to recover from a bad break-up, but Tait's attention soon shifts to Jasmine Woods, a seductive, sophisticated romance-writer. In a fit of masochism-and hoping, perhaps, that some glamour will rub off? Alison takes a job as Jasmine's secretary, and thus is in the house when her employer is brutally murdered. For the moment, at least, shock shuts Alison's mouth, but Tait and Quantrill find no shortage of potentially motivated suspects.

Meet the Author

Sheila Radley is the pseudonym of Sheila Robinson, who was born and brought up in rural Northamptonshire, one of the fortunate means-tested generation whose further education was free. She went from her village school via high school to London University, where she read history.

She served for nine years as an education officer in the Women's Royal Air Force, then worked variously as a teacher, a clerk in a shoe factory, a civil servant and in advertising. In the 1960s she opted out of conventional work and joined her partner in running a Norfolk village store and post office, where she began writing fiction in her spare time. Her first books, written as Hester Rowan, were three romantic novels; she then took to crime, and wrote 10 crime novels as Sheila Radley.
