This is another paragraph Product Description: Always in search of a good story, Fizz Fitzgerald finds it hard to hide her impatience when elderly Mrs. Sullivan is shown into her office. Genteel and motherly, Mrs. Sullivan can only spell one thing: boredom. Fizz is more than shocked, therefore, when Mrs. Sullivan asks Fizz to help prove her guilty of murder . . . Could this story be too good to be true? Fizz is determined to get to the bottom of this mystery and ropes in long-suffering partner-in-crime, Tam Buchanan. However, Buchanan, ever the gentleman, is reluctant to accept an old lady's money on a case that can only prove to be a waste of time. Or is it? This new case for sparkling detective duo Fizz and Buchanan is as puzzling as ever. For starters, why is Mrs. Sullivan so keen to be accused of murder? Secondly, who exactly was Amada Montrose, the murder victim; Lady of the Manor; beneficent Scottish gentlewoman; or, in Mrs. Sullivan's own words, a scruffy little slut ? With at least three people claiming to be Amanda s killer, it seems there is a lot more o the Montrose murder than first meets the eye.
