From the creator of BBC’s Death in Paradise television series comes a new clever and quirky installment in the Marlow Murder Club series

Geoffrey Lushington, affable mayor of the small village of Marlow, is not the man you'd expect to be a murder victim. But when he collapses at a council meeting and traces of aconite—"The Queen of Poisons"—are found in his mug, murder it seems to be.

Judith Potts, cantankerous septuagenarian and crossword setter, is not the woman you’d expect to solve a murder. But after two successful investigations, she and the other elderly ladies of the Marlow Murder Club are finally seen as boons to the village’s police department.
