gilt titles spine, price intact D/J., The ninth novel in the Kate Ivory series; Writer Kate Ivory has new neighbours on either side of her terraced house. On one side lives Jeremy Wells, a diffident, charming Oxford academic. On the other live Laura and Edward Foster who are intent on enjoying every moment of their retirement. None of them seems likely to become embroiled in serious crime, nor to be its victim. So when the Fosters are shot in what looks like a contract killing, the explanation has to be that it's a case of mistaken identity. But while Kate tries to hold aloof from the crime, Jeremy's behaviour is oddly irrational. First he leaves dubious messages on Kate's answering machine, then he asks her to take a mysterious package to his colleague at Bartlemas College. And when he insists Kate helps him to go into hiding, it's clear there's more to Jeremy Wells than meets the eye. It's not long before Kate asks herself the question: If. an unassuming Oxford academic has been leading a double life, is it possible the Fosters did too? Either way, with both of her neighbours out of the picture. it's up to Kate to uncover the truth. 282 pages. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 282 pages.
