Publisher's Summary

Things had gone wrong from the very beginning at the Almstone Flower Show, including a missing fortune teller. But events take a decidedly macabre turn when the fortune teller is found and Detective Inspector Sloan and Detective Constable Crosby arrive to investigate a murder for which there seems no means, no motive, and no opportunity.

Critic Reviews

"[Montague] has a clear, well-modulated voice, which is easy to listen to, and his dignified delivery matches the cerebral nature of this mystery." (AudioFile)

it takes a village

to make the setting for this clever & dryly humouous English cozy

a character driven who-dunnit, set just before ubiquitous technology complicated detective cozies

very well narrated (in the style of classic English who-dunnits)

nothing profound, but a very pleasant mind massage with no graphic violence or sexual content

My favorite Sloan so far

This is my favorite CD Sloan audiobook in the series so far. Perhaps I paid more attention, because this narrator is much improved over the narrator of the previous audiobooks. The plot is clever and enjoyable.
