Publisher's Summary

The ninth Fethering mystery featuring amateur detectives Carole and Jude. The bets are on whodunnit when a body is found at the bookies...

Jude has never been averse to a bit of a flutter; her friend Carole, on the other hand, thinks that the local betting shop is a den of iniquity. But when Jude stumbles upon the body of Polish immigrant Tadeusz Jankowski - the race is on to find his killer. The odds aren't looking good. No one seems to know anything about the mysterious Tadek - even his sister can't shed any light on what he was doing in Fethering.

Who was the anonymous woman in the bookies who seems to have vanished? Why was Tadek interested in the local university? And who is the ‘Fifi' Tadek spoke of with his dying breath? As they question the local residents, Carol finds an unexpected friend in an inveterate gambler and Jude finds herself in potentially more trouble than she can handle with a lecherous and charming drama professor. In this race there can only be one winner, but with no leads and several suspects in the running will our lady detectives be pipped at the post by a cold and calculating killer?

Martin Jarvis

I worked out whodunnit, using the Martin Jarvis principle. Ask yourself, who would Martin Jarvis play, if they could persuade him to take the role. He always either plays the baddie. -or the red herring! Just have to work out which way to jump
