Publisher's Summary

Yorkshire, 1930.

Kate Shackleton arrives at the garden party with her niece Harriet to celebrate the success of newly crowned Yorkshire Brewery Queen Ruth Parnaby. As companion to Ruth, Harriet explores the brewery, but it's Kate who opens the wrong door, finds herself staring at the body of a brewery worker and in danger of asphyxiation.

With the discovery of financial discrepancies, family secrets and the lure of national success for Ruth, motives for murder and abduction abound. Sometimes a threat comes from the most unexpected quarter, and it's up to Kate to fathom the mystery.

The 12th enthralling murder mystery in the best-selling Kate Shackleton series.

I loved it

I’ve listened to every single one of this series. I’ve enjoyed all of them. Great story lines, excellent narrator. A relaxing but still engaging crime book. More please! 😊

Another Great Story

This is another brilliant Kate Shackleton book. As with the others it is compelling, sad, funny and uplifting. I love to be in the world of Kate, Sykes, Mrs Sugden and Harriet. The narration is excellent and captures the nuanced characteristics of the various people. Having finished it in a few days, I now feel bereft! Can't wait for the next one.
