Product description


'Catherine Aird is as clever a detective writer as Margery Allingham.' Times Literary Supplement


The new Detective Inspector Sloan mystery from the mistress of cosy English crime Tidying up the famous yew hedge maze at Aumerle Court was never Peter Carter's favourite job. He liked it even less this Monday morning when he reached the exact centre of the maze - an allegory for death since the time of the Minotaur. He is supervised as ever by the redoubtable Miss Daphne, chatelaine of the Court, who is surveying the maze from an upstairs window, as the ladies of the house have done since Tudor times. She, too, realizes that death is in their midst. Detective Inspector Sloan soon arrives at Aumerle Court, with Detective Constable Crosby in two. Together they begin an investigation that will prove to have more twists and turns than the maze itself...
