Intrepid PI Jordan Lacey is back – with two new cases to solve.
When it is discovered that somebody is poisoning Samuel Steel’s beloved hill-top garden, PI Jordan Lacey is called to investigate.
But what starts out as a relatively straightforward case soon takes a sinister turn when Steel’s wife, Anne, is found brutally murdered – with a pair of garden shears stuck in her neck.
Meanwhile, Jordan is approached with another case, involving stand-up comedian George Hill, who claims that he is being stalked by an unknown woman.
When Hill is found hanged in his dressing-room, Jordan is faced with a second mysterious death on her hands.
With the bodies piling up, it seems that the seaside town of Latching may not be as serene as it appears.
Jordan’s search for the truth leads to the inadvertent discovery of an international crime ring – and a killer with a very personal vendetta…
Jest and Die is the thrilling fifth instalment in the much-acclaimed Jordan Lacey series, featuring the plucky and humorous Jordan Lacey.
