This crime novella is much better than what I was expecting, and will definitely make you wonder what your gran gets up to. We start off with Hilda Hopkins, OAP and knitting machine addict, escaping from the police. As we read on we find out what Hilda has done, whilst evading police capture.
Trying to make a small income Hilda took in a lodger, but when he died she decided to rather than report it, clear out his bank account and carry on collecting his pension. Finding it an easy way to make money, Hilda then starts bumping off further lodgers, or 'paying guests' as she likes to call them, creating woolen dolls of them that she has around the house.
Hilda may be old, but she still has her marbles, and is quite spry, so will the police be able to capture her? This is quite a fun but dark little read that made me glad my gran is already dead, or I could have seen her in the role of Hilda.
