Publisher's Summary

When a body is discovered on a rocky little island in the middle of Nethergate Bay, the media swoop on the seaside town. Soon an enquiring hack discovers that local resident Fran Castle has previously aided the police using her psychic abilities.

Brought into the investigation, Fran naturally asks her friend Libby Sarjeant, the middle-aged actress and crime-solver, to help, but they soon find themselves up to their knees in more mud and murder than they could possibly have anticipated.

enjoyable listen.

Any additional comments?

all the main characters are in here as they move on with their lives.<br/>fran has moved into a cottage in nethergate and libby has written the panto for this year. instead of directing it she wants to play a part in it and is at a loose end not knowing what to do now.<br/>once again the pair are involved in solving a murder and making friends with jane, a reporter on the local newspaper.<br/>this series is getting better as the listener gets more involved with the characters.
