A SMALL SPARK. A WHOLE LOT OF MURDER…
Preparations are underway for Cherrywood’s annual celebration of Guy Fawkes Night . . .
When it’s announced that the hotly anticipated ‘Penny for the Guy’ trail will have a celebrity judge – former DJ ‘Screaming’ Ade Adams – competition steps up amongst the villagers.
But as everyone gathers for the main event, Ade is found dead atop the bonfire with three mysterious tarot cards in his pocket, and barmaid and part-time sleuth Tess Feather suspects foul play. Why would anyone in Cherrywood want the retired disc jockey dead? And could there be a connection to a recently returned villager: Tess’s estranged brother Mikey?
Once again, Tess is forced to team up with her ex-boyfriend – private investigator Liam Hanley – and her friends Raven and Oliver as they investigate a tale of murder and vengeance that could go all the way to the top.
