The Corpse on the Court (Fethering Series #14)by Simon Brett
The genteel game of Real Tennis takes a murderous twist in Simon Brett's witty and entertaining new Fethering mystery - Jude's life has been turned upside-down thanks her new mant, Piers Targett, who's keen to get her involved in his hobby - or obsession - of Real Tennis. But when one of Piers' friends dies on the court in suspicious circumstances, Jude finds herself caught up in the police investigation. Meanwhile, Jude's neighbour Carole is trying to identify the human remains known locally as the 'Lady in the Lake.' As the two investigations become intertwined, Carole and Jude's efforts to find the truth look set to lead to more murders.
" Fethering followers will love the way Brett showcases Jude here, showing new vulnerable bits. For everyone else, Brett performs his magic on the traditional cozy, making the frame rock with laughter at human foibles and quake with well-placed surprises."
