Lexy Lomax has run away from her obnoxious husband, taking with her a cool half million of his ill-gotten gains and a homicidal chihuahua called Kinky. Holed up in a decrepit log cabin on the Suffolk coast, Lexy finds herself mistaken for the previous owner of the cabin, a private investigator, now deceased. Before she knows it she's embroiled in a cocktail of marital infidelity (possibly), missing cats (probably) and poison pen letters (definitely). Oh, yes - and a murder or two... ""Crisp prose and a plot laced with animal tomfoolery will keep readers amused and eager for a sequel."" Publishers Weekly ""A delightful romp with an admirable pair of protagonists. . . Highly recommended."" I Love a Mystery

Kaye C Hill lives in Guildford. A career involving steel-capped boots, chainsaws and railway embankments somehow inspired her to start writing crime fiction. www.kayechill.comFrom Publishers Weekly:
Set on the Suffolk coast, Hill's droll debut introduces accidental sleuth Alexandra Lexy Lomax. After discovering that her flaky husband, Gerard Warwick-Holmes, the star of TV's Heirlooms in Your Attic, is a crook, Lexy flees London—along with her pet Chihuahua and half a million quid of Gerard's stolen loot—and takes refuge at Otter's End, a log cabin in Clopwolde-on-Sea. Lexy soon realizes that Mrs. Glenda Doyle, the cabin's deceased previous occupant, had been a PI with an ad for discreet services still running in the local paper. How hard can it be, wonders Lexy, who's in need of ready cash (she doesn't dare touch the stolen money for the moment), to trail a possibly philandering wife or locate a missing cat? It turns out to be very hard, indeed, after the wife is murdered and the cat proves more valuable than the average feline. Crisp prose and a plot laced with animal tomfoolery will keep readers amused and eager for a sequel. (Oct.)
