About the book

Lonely, ageing and chronically ill, Ned Jones is found dead on sweltering summer afternoon in his rooms.

Everyone assumes he died of natural causes.

But after the post-mortem suggests otherwise, Detective Chief Inspector Michael McKenna and his team become involved.

In search of Ned's killer, McKenna visits the house of Edith Harris, where Ned lodged.

But fragile, neurotic Edith and her three enigmatic daughters Annie, Mina and Phoebe spring one surprise after another on McKenna.

Slowly, McKenna begins to unravel a story of scholarship and greed, deceit and twisted loyalties, where the sins of the past, as well as the present, are avenged on innocent and guilty alike

    I love the idea that each book is numbered and limited, they're extra special because they're personalised with those sought-after signatures, and they are not on tip-in pages.
