"Marion continues to excel at cosy crime in this eagerly-awaited sequel to her bestselling novel, The Apricot Colonel. We pick up the story with Cassandra and the colonel happily ensconsed in a state of newly wedded bliss. Cassandra is editing the latest buzz book about a woman who runs away to Germany to start a white asparagus farm, while the colonel slips off periodically on his secret business. Their domestic idyll is suddenly shattered by the news that the daughter of a dear friend has been found dead of an apparent drug overdose, but neither are convinced her death was an accident. By chance they discover a manuscript on the girl's computer revealing that she financed her university studies doing escort work. When it turns out that the text is in fact an explosive expose of the local child prostitution scene, our detectives don't have far to look for a motive for murdera With characteristic panache and a magnificent wardrobe of women's clothes (his), Cassandra and her colonel set out to find a killer, immersing themselves in the seedy side of our nation's capital. Along the way they also learn a great deal more about each other, revealing new depths to this delightfully unconventional relationship."--Provided by publisher.
