Meredith Mitchell and her long-time friend Inspector Alan Markby planned to do something special for the weekend--just to break the routine. As it happened, it was murder that changed their plans...
Call the Dead Again
Meredith is hesitant about picking up the hitchhiker on a deserted road outside Bamford, yet with darkness approaching, she just can't leave the young girl alone. But when the stranger is evasive about why she's headed for the beautiful Tudor home of a prominent lawyer, Meredith begins to feel uneasy. And when the lawyer is found dead the next morning, Meredith fears her first instincts were right.
Soon the intrepid sleuths team up to uncover the ghosts of the past and mysteries of the present--exposing some scandalous secrets that drove someone to mischief, madness...and murder.

Like her heroine, Ann Granger has worked in the diplomatic service in various parts of the world. She met her husband, who was also working in the British Embassy, in Prague and together they received postings to places as far apart as Munich and Lusaka. They are now permanently based in Bicester, near Oxford.From AudioFile:
The day after a mysterious and beautiful hitchhiker asks to be dropped off at Andrew Penhallow's front gate, he turns up dead. It's up to Superintendent Alan Markby to discover the identity of the visitor and unravel the crime. Bill Wallis does his usual outstanding job. Much of the dialogue is highly emotional, and the reading conveys this intensity believably. While the major characters are from the same social class and background, Wallis manages to make each voice distinct. And when given the opportunity to portray someone completely different, such as an old crone or a troubled adolescent, Wallis's reading shines. R.E.K. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
