In spring 1928 Hattie Parish arrived in Melbourne with her brother Arthur. When they accepted an invitation to a weekend in the Victorian countryside they had no idea of the web of lies and intrigue they were walking into. What happened during those fateful hours is recalled in thrilling detail by Hattie as she answers a letter from an interested author…

Both an homage to, and pastiche of, Golden Age Detective Fiction, this Australian twist on the country house murder boasts a cast of vivid characters in a story that will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.
