Book Description

New in the series that's "a must for British cozy fans" (Booklist).

Lois Meade has worked through all the days of the week, turning up clues and scrubbing up messes and murderers in the village of Long Farnden. But sleuthing is rarely a spotless endeavor...

A series of robberies have begun to plague Long Farnden, and Lois's own daughter, Josie, is shaken when a thief makes off with a hundred pounds from the till in her grocery shop. But before her policeman fiancé can crack the case, someone cracks Lois's husband on the head when he interrupts a burglary in progress. Now Lois-and the besotted Inspector Cowgill-must determine who's cleaning out Long Farnden, and clean up after an increasingly violent crime spree...

5.0 out of 5 stars Foul Play at Four 13 Mar. 2012
By Katie
Ann Pursers latest book Foul Play at Four is one of her best crime mysteries, you won't be able to put it down. Would love her now to write another book in her village series.

3.0 out of 5 stars SPINNING A COZY TALE 25 Jun. 2012
By Red Rock Bookworm TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Ann Purser's FOUL PLAY AT FOUR is one of those cozies you set aside to read on a rainy (or snowy) day. Just brew yourself a cup of tea, snuggle up and get ready for a visit to the village of Long Farnden. A composite of Jessica Fletcher and Miss Marple, protagonist Lois Meade is the owner of a cleaning company and amateur sleuth who investigates "from a distance" and is never really put in any truly dangerous situations (unless you classify fending off the advances of an amorous Police Inspector named Cowgill as dangerous.

The town itself is populated by a cast of characters whose age, gender, temperament background, relationships and moral values are the true foundation of the story, with theft, assault and un-premeditated murder being present but underplayed. Even Ms. Purser's villains, while coming across as a bit threatening are, in reality, just "bad boys" who are not all that villainous.

Think of this book as the flip side of authors like Michael Connelly, James Patterson or even Agatha Christie. You're not going to get a headache from taxing your powers of deduction but this amusing bit of fluff will make the dreary afternoon just fly by.
