Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Adopted at birth, Hanna Conti attempts to trace her family. She turns up a mother who, 20 years earlier, was convicted of murder. Convinced that her mother is innocent, Hannah hires PI Grace Smith to prove it. Grace uncovers the story of the very messy murder of Janet Hepburn, a teacher at St. Martins Comprehensive, but there are a lot of people whod rather she stopped digging. On Graces side (or possibly not) is an ex-cop with a shady past and Betterman177, a mysterious emailer who sends tantalizing clues about what was happening at St. Martins two decades ago. To add to these complications, Grace has been conned into bird-sitting a psychotic parrot, and Terry Rosco, the most chauvinistic cop in Seatoun, is trying to move into Graces spare room. And, oh yes—someone keeps trying to kill her.

Synopsis:

Adopted at birth, Hannah Conti is determined to trace her family - but didn't bargain for a mother convicted of murder.

As if this wasn't enough, Grace has been conned into bird-sitting a psychotic parrot, a chauvinistic cop keeps trying to move in to Grace's house - and someone's trying to kill her ...
