Publisher's Summary

London, early 1950s. Marcia Beasley of St John's Wood is discovered dead in her home, naked and covered with a coal scuttle. Detective Sergeant Greenleaf is tasked with solving the crime and bringing meaning to her gruesome death, and it seems her whole social circle have secrets to hide and grudges to bear.

Who, for example, is the limping midnight visitor? Is the bibulous priest as ingenious as he seems? And will Mrs Burkiss ever yield her keys to the broom cupboard?

What the Critics Say

"A perfect mixture of funny and acerbic, with a cast of colourful characters and a school of well-deployed red herrings, A Little Murder is wholly delightful." (Laura Wilson, author of Stratton’s War)

    "A lot of twists and turns"

    I enjoyed listening to this book. It kept me guessing to almost the end.
    Rosy is a likable young woman but maybe a little trusting. There are lots of characters and you have to pay attention because there are so many things happening. But in the end it is worth the effort.

    "A bit disappointing"

    I was hoping for a lighthearted mystery, and it is that. But it was neither as well-written, nor as well-performed as I'd hoped. The characters were flat, and the voicing was obnoxiously high-pitched. It was just interesting enough that I finished it, but it was drawn out far longer than was reasonable. Not terrible, but not something to recommend.
