The author of Cliffhanger returns with more despicable plots and crimes gone comically awry in this "fast paced and ingenious" mystery series (Daily Mail on Cliffhanger). A lover of Koi carp and hater of humanity, Al Greenwood isn't above shoving his own wife over a cliff. But when the disgruntled cab driver went in for the kill, the unfortunate woman who got the shove turned out to be someone else entirely. That misdone misdeed led Al and his wife Audrey through the "rollicking ride" of T.J. Middleton's "witty seaside comedy of manners," Cliffhanger (The Independent). Now Al's gotten himself into another sticky situation. When his estranged daughter, Carol, re-appears, apparently keen on making amends, Al thinks his days of scheming are behind him. But a camping holiday, a game of Scrabble, and yet another cliff have put the criminal cabbie back in the driver's seat. And he's going to need all his immoral cunning and dreadful charm to stay one step ahead.
