A Messy Affair Paperback / softback

Part of the The Lena Szarka Mysteries series

Paperback / softback


'Warm-hearted but's hard to think of a better amateur sleuth series in the last decade' Morning Star 'Light-hearted and engaging . . . a perfect antidote to the January blues' Irish Independent The only way is murder . . . Lena Szarka, a Hungarian cleaner working in London, is forced to brush up on her detective skills for a third time when her cousin Sarika is plunged into danger. Sarika and her reality TV star boyfriend Terry both receive threatening notes. When Terry stops calling, Lena assumes he's lost interest.

Until he turns up. Dead. Lena knows she must act fast to keep her cousin from the same fate. Scrubbing her way through the grubby world of reality television, online dating and betrayed lovers, Lena finds it harder than she thought to discern what's real - and what's just for the cameras.
