R in the Month, Paperback / softback Book

R in the Month Paperback / softback

Part of the Virago Modern Classics series

Paperback / softback


* 'Ever since reading R in the Month as a teenager, I've been a Nancy Spain fan.

I love her juxtaposition of seedy, atmospheric settings with humour and showbiz glamour.

There's still no one quite like her' ELLY GRIFFITHSThe oyster party had the kiss of death upon it - even though there were two 'R's in the month.

Miriam Birdseye - famed revue star and sleuth - could have told you that from the start.

She isn't a bit surprised to learn that her fiance's mother died in the night. But who at the seedy Sussex hotel would have poisoned the bivalves?

Could it be the hotel proprietor - a handsome, drunken bankrupt?

His put-upon wife? Miriam's impressively moustachioed fiancé? Or the menacing, unsavoury chef?Can Miriam track down the killer before anyone else is murdered by mollusc?* 'Her detective novels are hilarious - less about detecting than delighting, with absurd farce and a wonderful turn of phrase' SANDI TOKSVIG
