With girlfriend DS Jacquie Carpenter back at investigating and little son, Nolan, a fast-growing six months, Peter ‘Mad Max’ Maxwell, Head of Sixth Form at Leighford High, hires an au pair, Juanita Reyes. The summer slowly unfolds in sleepy seaside Leighford, and Juanita seems perfect, doting on the baby and working hard to improve her English.

Then, she goes missing. And so does Rodrigo Mendoza, a Spanish teacher at a neighboring school. When Rodrigo’s body is found in a hurriedly dug grave, Maxwell rushes to Juanita’s defence as the spotlight of suspicion descends upon her.

But then a second corpse appears . . .

About the Author:

Review:

Cleverly conceived and amusingly executed, Trow is on sterling form (Sunday Times)

I enjoy crime novels although I would normally prefer to follow the police investigator rather than an amateur sleuth but I was impressed with this book. The plot is well-structured with twists along the way but it wasn't until very close to the end that I had even an inkling of the perpetrator. What seemed unlikely throughout the book produced a completely plausible ending. I'd never heard of M J Trow before I read this book, but I'm now in search of more books from the series.
