Temporarily out of stock
One murder to solve and another to cover up. It’ll be tricky, but the OAPresidents of Sunset Hall are going to give it their best shot.
Sunset Hall is a house share for the old and unruly, led by Agnes Sharp. It’s aneventful day when this group of idiosyncratic seniors gets a visit from the policeto inform them of some shocking news. A body has been discovered next door.Everyone puts on a long face, but they are secretly relieved the body inquestion is not the one they’re currently hiding in the shed (sorry, Lillith). Itseems the answer to their little problem with Lillith may have fallen right intotheir lap. All they have to do is find out who murdered their neighbour, so theycan pin Lillith’s death on them, thus killing two old birds with one stone. Toinvestigate, the group (not forgetting Hettie the tortoise) will venture into thenot-so-idyllic village of Duck End and tangle with sinister bakers, broken stairlifts, inept criminals and their own dark secrets.
