Publisher's summary

Archie Andrews tries the new cologne his new girlfriend gave him for his birthday. He goes out to get some food for his birthday party and is later found dead near the vicinity of his apiary.

With no clues, no suspects, and no idea how he died, the Suffolk constabulary call their consulting lateral-thinking private detective to assist them in their investigation.

However, John Handful has a conflict of interests. The new girlfriend of the victim happens to be his ex, Kimberley Ashlyn Gere.

A wonderful mystery

Glad I stuck with the series after book 2. This was the best of the series so far and the best narration. I did not want to put it down and binged it as FA’s as I could.

This book was provided free for review, however, the thoughts are my own.
