    Anna Nicholas

In the sizzling summer heat of Mallorca, unorthodox and charismatic 34-year-old sleuth, Isabel Flores Montserrat, finds herself investigating the grisly balcony fall of a famous local opera singer. Is it a tragic suicide or, as she suspects, a case of murder? Meanwhile, in her own mountain village of Sant Martí, elderly homeowners are dying in mysterious circumstances while a newly arrived ambitious estate agent is receiving anonymous death threats.

With sinister forces at play and the clock ticking, Isabel, and pet ferret, Furó, once again join Chief of Police, Tolo Cabot, in setting out to uncover the truth before more lives are lost.
