Set at the Suffolk coast, Hill's droll debut introduces unintentional sleuth Alexandra Lexy Lomax. After gaining knowledge of that her flaky husband, Gerard Warwick-Holmes, the superstar of TV's Heirlooms on your Attic, is a criminal, Lexy flees London—along together with her puppy Chihuahua and part 1000000 quid of Gerard's stolen loot—and takes shelter at Otter's finish, a log cabin in Clopwolde-on-Sea. Lexy quickly realizes that Mrs. Glenda Doyle, the cabin's deceased past occupant, were a PI with an advert for discreet companies nonetheless working within the neighborhood paper. How challenging can or not it's, wonders Lexy, who's wanting prepared money (she doesn't dare contact the stolen cash for the moment), to path a in all probability philandering spouse or find a lacking cat? It seems to be very demanding, certainly, after the spouse is murdered and the cat proves extra beneficial than the common tom cat. Crisp prose and a plot laced with animal tomfoolery will retain readers amused and longing for a sequel.
