'With fascinating characters and an intriguing plot, this is a real page turner' KATIE FFORDE praise for the series.
Ex-actress Libby Sarjeant is busy directing a play for the opening of a new theatre in her village when one of her cast is found brutally murdered. Written by her friend Peter, the play is based on real events from his family's history, and it seems that these events still cast a long shadow. As the investigation begins to uncover a tangled web of relationships in the village of Steeple Martin, Libby is determined to solve the murder and get her show on the road!
But is she too close to Peter's family to be able to recognise the killer?
The first book in Lesley Cookman's bestselling series featuring amateur sleuth Libby Sarjeant, this unputdownable cozy crime novel is perfect for fans of Betty Rowlands, Faith Martin, J.R. Ellis, LJ Ross, Miss Marple and Midsummer Murders.
