Carole had never had such a bad hair day! The last thing she expected when she went for a trim at ?Connie?s Clip Joint? was to find the body of Kyra, Connie?s assistant, in the back room, strangled. Immediately involving her friend and neighbour Jude, Carole becomes determined to investigate the death. Meanwhile Kyra?s boyfriend Nathan Locke has vanished. His family, an eccentric, controlling bunch don?t seem overly concerned. Instead they are bizarrely obsessed with a family board game which seems to provide a host of clues as to Nathan?s whereabouts. Can Carole and Jude unravel the clues and discover the truth before someone is falsely accused, or before the killer makes a second deadly move? And how many haircuts can a middle-aged sleuth have before people become suspicious?!.… (more)

I have enjoyed other Simon Brett mysteries but I thought this one was silly and far-fetched. The two sleuths are annoying busybodies. I finished it hoping the plot would improve as it proceeded. It did not. ( )

These cozies involving retired Carole Seddon and her neighbour Jude are not everyone's cup of tea, but this title is as good any of the others. Connie is the hairdresser in Fethering. Carole and Jude become involved when Carole's assistant Kyra is found dead in the back room of the shop. Carole is the first appointment for the day and Kyra should have opened the shop up. Connie the hairdresser arrives late, lets Carole in, and then discovers the body when she goes to make Carole a cup of coffee. Kyra's boyfriend Nathan becomes the prime suspect when he appears to be missing. Carole and Jude of course become involved - they just can't help themselves. The story involves Nathan's eccentric family and leads Carole and Jude a little out of their comfort zone into remotest Cornwall. As I said, not everyone's cup of tea. There's a great deal of silliness in this one, but if you are looking for something light to read then you could do a great deal worse than read the Fethering series in order. #8 in the series ( )
