Dead on Cue
by Sally Spencer

The latest Chief Inspector Woodend mystery

With the newspapers screaming for a quick solution, this is a case no one wants to touch — so naturally it is Chief Inspector Woodend who finds himself left holding the baby. With his usual panache, Cloggin’-it Charlie quickly immerses himself of the world of television, meeting people he has previously only seen as characters on the screen, learning that while there may be honour among thieves there does not seem to be much on the set of Maddox Row. The question, it soon becomes apparent, is not who wanted to kill Valerie Farnsworth, but who didn’t. And will the murderer stop at only one victim? There are those in the know who are convinced that he won’t.


... fast-paced, often humorous puzzler. Spencer melds her characters' spoken word and inner thoughts seamlessly

This latest Charlie Woodend novel again boasts a difficult mystery and evocative early 60s atmosphere... much here to please Woodend fans
