Product Description

Product Description

New edition of this bestselling murder mystery series that includes a map of Steeple Martin, cast of characters and a bonus chapter of the next book in the series.

Middle-aged artist-come-investigator Libby Sarjeant’s son Adam has uncovered a body with his rotovator in Creekmarsh Place, where he is working as a gardener for TV personality Lewis Osbourne-Walker.

The police seem to think there is no connection with the current owner but Libby, naturally, can’t just leave it at that. With her psychic friend Fran’s mind on other things, Libby has to go it alone.

A murder in London inspires the police to dig deeper and Libby, determined to help her new friend Lewis, stirs up more mud than Adam’s rotovator.

Synopsis

'Floundering in the footsteps of a deliberately downplayed police enquiry, Libby manages to stir up more mud than the rotavator'. When television personality Lewis Osbourne-Walker buys Creekmarsh Place, near Steeple Martin in Kent, Libby Sarjeant's son Adam is employed to help with the renovation of the garden. What he doesn't expect is to uncover a long buried corpse. Libby, naturally, wants to know more about it, but the police aren't going to tell her, and with her friend Fran's mind on other things, she has to go it alone, with interesting and possibly catastrophic results.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite Libby so far! 17 Sep 2009
Format:Paperback
I've loved all the Libby series but this one is a gem! Perfect cosy crime, great descriptions, lovely well-drawn characters - some new but also a welcome meeting up with old familar ones from previous books - and a plot with so many twists and turns that I thought everyone was the murderer at some point! It was also (personal opinion only) nice to have more of Libby and learn more about her in this book while Fran was otherwise occupied. A really, really good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blooming good read 4 July 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I do love a cosy murder mystery and have enjoyed all of the Libby Sargeant mysteries, but this one is my favouite so far. Nicely staged drama and a memorable and strangely likeable character in Lewis Osbourne -I hope he will appear in later books, too!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read 2 July 2012
Format:Paperback
For me this was another enjoyable tale of reluctant sleuths, Libby and Fran, up to their necks in mystery as usual.

I got slightly confused in places with the number of characters, but that's more to do with the slow pace of my reading due to pressure of work. I still give it top rating for the simple reason that it's the perfect whodunit. Despite the theories bouncing between Libby Fran I didn't guess who it was until a few pages before I got to the answer, and even then, Lesley Cookman managed to throw me off the scent (Bloom? Scent? Geddit?)

If you enjoy whodunits, then this is a great read.

2.0 out of 5 stars not good 28 April 2012
By xxx
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very thin plot. When an author resorts to tunnels you know they are running out of ideas. My main gripe with these stories is that Fan and Libby have been turned from independent women to women who have check everything is OK with their other halves, or put up with them sulking, not very 2012. Why the author didn't leave them as single women I know not. Libby is becoming more annoying with every book. Personally, I'd like Fran to be the leading character in these not the feeble, silly Libby. I found the plot weak, padded and dull.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring 20 Dec 2011
By lila
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having read all M C Beatons books I was looking for something to read for cold winter nights I read some positive comments about these books, so I got a few, wish I hadnt, compared to Beatons light and addictive books, these are leaden and I gave up after a few chapters, I tried to read two of them just to be fair, but nope, still boring, waste of money.
