The seventh title in the Libby Sarjeant murder mystery series based in the fictional village of Steeple Martin, Kent. New edition includes map of Steeple Martin, cast of characters and a bonus chapter from the next title in the series. When sleuth-come-pantomime director Libby Serjeant learns of threatening letters sent to Cy, a friend of her friend Harry, at first she assumes it's just anti-gay prejudice. With her partner Ben having moved in to her cottage, and son Adam also at home nursing a broken leg, as well as having the panto to cope with, Libby is at first reluctant to get involved. However, when murder follows, Libby and her psychic investigator friend Fran are drawn into another investigation in which the shadows of the past have a dramatic effect on the present, with dangerous consequences for them both.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is the perfect British mystery cozy series.....a delightful cast of characters who grow with each book, quaint villages, intriguing storylines. The books revolve around a group of 50ish year old friends and relatives who work in a local theater in their spare time, and live in the picturesque British village of Steeple Martin. The main characters are friends Libby & Fran who stumble upon unsolved murders. In each book, the author has a very clever way of weaving two mysteries together - there is often something from the past that had remained unsolved, linking it to a present scenario. Very cleverly done. Read these in order, they draw you in from the first line..... I can't put them down! No sex, no gore, occasional swearing.
