About the Author
Lesley Cookman started writing almost as soon as she could read, and filled many exercise books with pony stories until she was old enough to go out with boys. After following a varied career as a model, air stewardess and disc jockey, she turned to writing short fiction and features for a variety of magazines before graduating from the University of Wales, with an MA in Creative Writing. She has taught writing for both Kent Adult Education and the WEA and edited the first Sexy Shorts collection of short stories from Accent Press in aid of the Breast Cancer Campaign. She lives on the Kent coast and has four grown up children and a passion for community theatre. She has written 10 titles in the Libby Sarjeant Murder Mysteries series and has also published How To Write A Pantomime.

I can't wait for November and the next book.
Too many cosy crimes have some boring old spinster drawing on her life in Much-Boring-In-The-Wold. Not so Libby. She drinks, she smokes, and even if she suffers some doubts about her self-image, she doesn't let that stop her jumping into bed with her suitor. She gamely accepts being referred to as "you old trout" from her local gay restaurateur, and she doesn't stop at poking her nose in where it doesn't concern her, even when she's told not to.
Littered with random deaths, as the mystery unfolds it becomes obvious that X did it, but when X dies off, the reader has to rethink, and naturally blames Y... until Y shuffles off the mortal coil, too. In fact, the puzzle had me stumped until all was revealed in the final few pages.
An excellent if eccentric read, but that eccentricity is perfectly in keeping with the slight wackiness of Libby, her chums and her demanding cat.
More of Libby please.
