Penguin Putnam
A dinner party at a Fedborough mansion with some stuffy, not very close friends is not exactly Jude's cup of tea. But the practically mummified torso of a woman found in the cellar is much more up Jude's alley. Once again, Jude and her reluctant neighbor Carole, find themselves embroiled in another puzzling whodunit.

"Few crime writers are as enchantingly gifted...as Simon Brett." (Sunday Times, London)

"A marvelous send-up of contemporary British society...the kind of writing that makes you want both to savor the prose slowly and to turn the page quickly." (Booklist, starred)

Baker & Taylor
During a boring dinner party at a Fedborough mansion with some stuffy acquaintances, the mummified torso of a woman turns up in the cellar, and Jude and her reluctant neighbor, Carole, find themselves playing detective in another puzzling whodunit.

Blackwell North Amer
In the historic village of Fedborough, Jude attends a dinner party for the new homeowners of Pelling House. But an uninvited guest - in the form of a mummified, armless and legless torso - has crashed the party. There's no telling how long the dead body has been in the cellar, or even who it once was.
Intrigued with the new mystery on her hands, Jude elicits Carole's help to solve the case - and hopefully snap Carole out of her growing depression from a recent failed relationship. Their detective work soon uncovers that Pelling House's previous owners include two divorced couples who harbor a lot of resentment. And Jude and Carole suspect that they may be harboring some dark secrets as well.
