Stuart Roberts is a mild-mannered, shy accountant suffering from nightmares in which he remembers committing a violent murder (possibly two) and wants to know if they really happened. Grace doesn't want to take the case on the grounds that murders tend to mean there's someone who is prepared to kill around and she'd rather pass - thanks very much. However, these are killings with a difference: they took place nearly thirty years before Stuart was born.

I had a couple of other calls I needed to make, but I decided I might as well fix our breakfast first. The post arrived as i was dishing up. Two bills for Arlene, a dozen letters and a parcel for Waterloo. Did I mention they'd started sending him fan mail? Generally addressed to the 'brave little dog who saved the little girl' or some such. I was now the unofficial secretary and only dogsbody of the mutt's fan club.

Private investigator Grace Smith reluctantly agrees to dog-sit for a friendly but troublesome dog whose owner is having an operation and finds herself mingling with rock royalty while investigating a murder that may or may not have happened in the 1930s. Refusing to be side-tracked by talk of past-life regressions, Grace eventually finds out what is really going on, and Waterloo's presence almost makes up for the lack of donkeys in the story. ( )

This was a fun book. Very British. Similar in a vague way to Stephanie Plum. ( )

Once again, lots of different plot lines, all satisfyingly tied in together in the end. The dog sitting was funny - it is amazing how dogs grow on you! ( )
