Meet Beth Haldane: a historian with a taste for gardening, snug coffee shops… and solving mysteries?

It’s a crisp spring day in Dulwich Village when


arrives at

Wyatt’s School

for her new job, keen to impress and show off her research skills. Her boss

Alan Jenkins

seems a little shifty as he runs off for a mysterious appointment… but Beth puts it out of her mind until lunchtime when, strolling the five-hundred-year-old grounds, she is shocked to stumble over

Alan’s dead body

: spots of blood on his mustard-yellow tweed jacket, his face covered with a carefully-placed handkerchief.Beth can’t resist joining the hunt for the killer and soon discovers Alan rubbed his fellow teachers up the wrong way…

was it the handsome headmaster who’d planned a secret meeting? The gossiping receptionist who knows everything? Or the wily groundskeeper with a grudge?

When Beth returns from her sleuthing to find Alan’s wife rifling through the archives, it’s clear someone at this school had a deadly secret … But with parents and teachers panicking that the respectable reputation of Wyatt’s is under threat,

will Beth find herself in the murderer’s sights before the school bell rings?

Wander down the cobbled streets of Dulwich, where nothing is as perfect as it seems! Fans of Agatha Christie,

The Thursday Murder Club

and Faith Martin won’t be able to put down this deliciously gripping mystery.
