When the local people decide to hold a pageant to celebrate their local green space and its history, at the behest of Martha Laker, Pearl agrees to help. DCI Mike McGuire is concerned that matters could soon spiral out of control, and so once again he and Pearl are on different sides.
The book is rich in characters, one being Pearl’s mother, the spirited Dolly, who holds an antipathy towards the police in general which until recently had extended to Mike McGuire, but their entente is fragile. Also keen on
Cleverly plotted, this is an intriguing mystery that had me perplexed right to the end. It has sharply defined characters, that leap off the page to you, one of which is the lovely coastal town of Whitstable itself. After reading this book you will want to move there. Highly recommended.
