The Poisoning in the Pub
by Simon Brett
Welcome to Fethering! Carole and Jude spring into amateur detective action when their favourite pub is targeted by a killer in this quirky, cozy, British village mystery.
Jude and Carole get more than they bargained for when a lunchtime meal in their local pub leaves everyone with food poisoning. The landlord is horrified, and when a series of disasters start to befall his business it looks like it could be the end of the road for the Crown and Anchor.
Left with a bad taste in their mouths – and not just from the food – the two amateur detectives wonder if it might just be more than a run of bad luck that’s forcing their favourite pub into bankruptcy.
When a young man is found in the kitchen of the pub, though, with a knife through his heart, Carole and Jude swing into action. There’s a killer on the loose in Fethering, and Carole and Jude need to uncover who it is before it’s last orders for the pub – and themselves.
Genre: Women Sleuths
“Droll . . . As “women of a certain age,” Carole and Jude are often underestimated, a circumstance they use to good advantage, along with dogged persistence, feminine wiles and people skills”
