Carole Seddon hates Christmas -- it all seems rather a waste of time.
So when her neighbour and best friend, Jude, drags her along to go shopping at a local store called Gallimaufry -- she can feel her inner-Scrooge knocking.
But the sales are on and even Carole can't resist a bargain. Then a few days later -- Gallimaufry is burnt down and a body is discovered in the ashes.
It seems like a tragic accident but no-one can die of natural causes when a gun is involved.
The victim was young, pretty and successful -- who could possibly want her dead? With a host of suspects the lady detectives know they have their work cut out for them. And as they dig deeper they discover a host of half-truths and lies.
It seems that someone in Fethering has a deep, dark, deadly secret -- and is prepared to kill to keep it.
