A dinner party descends into chaos - and death - in the latest gripping Abbot Agency mystery.
Attending a birthday celebration for two young girls, Bea Abbot tries not to let superstition get the better of her when she realizes they are thirteen at dinner. What she doesnâ€™t anticipate is that the evening will end in sudden, violent death.
Suddenly a dining room curtain goes up in flames. While two members of the host family are rushed to hospital, Bea and a fellow guest search for the birthday girls in a house which has been plunged into darkness. And then the chaos begins â€¦
Could the fire have been started deliberately â€“ and were young Bernice and Alicia the intended targets? As Bea investigates, she finds herself drawn into the girlsâ€™ troubling world: a world rich in money but lacking in love.
