About this title


The Killing of Cinderella is the third in Christopher Lee's well-received series of Bath Detective Mysteries starring Inspector James Boswell Hodge Leonard. To Bath for the Christmas panto comes former Bond girl Lynda Elstrom - all curves and blond hair, though these days mostly famous for being famous. And yet she fails to appear for the panto's photo-call. The following morning she does show up, centre-stage, but hanging from the Fairy Godmother's wire. Irritating Lynda might have been . . . but who would want to kill her? Inspector Leonard has no shortage of people to interview. 'Prince Charming', played by Jason Williams, the ageless balladeer who bought his mum a bungalow with his first gold disc; Maurice Poulson, the director, scathing, cruel and brilliant; Curly Weekes from Saturday morning TV, the first black Buttons Bath has ever seen; Rudi Sharpe and the Rostow twins, the ugliest of Ugly Sisters; and Lynda's first husband, who just happened to be in Bath on the night in question . . . 'Christopher Lee brings the actors and agents to life with an eye for detail, realistic dialogue and an intimate knowledge of Bath . . . Bang up to date, a good read for any crime fans and if you know Bath it's even more absorbing.'Philip Horton, Bath Chronicle.

About the Author:

Christopher Lee (born 1941) was BBC correspondent in Moscow and covered defence and foreign affairs prior to becoming the first Quatercentenary Fellow in Contemporary History and Gomes Lecturer in Emmanuel College, Cambridge. It was there that he began writing his history of Britain, which became the award-winning Radio 4 series This Sceptred Isle. His political drama series for radio, The House, ran for six years. His other books include the three volumes of This Sceptred Isle, 1603, Nelson and Napoleon, and Eight Bells and Top Masts. He edited Winston Churchill's A History of the English-Speaking Peoples for its one-volume edition.
