At the roulette table an elderly, ludicrously made-up woman in dazzling diamonds is making a killing. Who would guess the bejewelled high roller is actually retired art teacher Miss Emily Seeton, in disguise to help capture a mysterious crime boss?

Miss S. must get a good look at the crook's face to produce a sketch for the police, a simple task surely. It's not her fault things escalate, and after half-blinding one baddie with the tail of her mink stole and whacking another with her handbag, she's soon gambling for the very highest stakes - her own life.

Serene amidst every kind of skullduggery, this eccentric English spinster steps in where Scotland Yard stumbles, armed with nothing more than her sketchpad and umbrella!

What people are saying about Miss Seeton:

"Miss Seeton is a hoot! I was torn between laughter and eye rolling with each page turn. The characters are loveable and thoroughly British. This is a perfect specimen of classic British mystery."

"What a joy Miss Seeton is. Why did I wait so long to read them? Splashy characters, lovely setting, and just plain funny."

"I've become a Miss Ess addict. Great characters that get better with each book. A must for anyone who loves a good British cozy with a twist, and surprising revelations of what a good brollie can do in a pinch."

"What a great series. This is one of the best in English light reading mysteries."

"Miss Seeton is a delightful sendup of the amateur sleuth. If your doctor has prescribed laughter as the best medicine, run and buy the entire series as fast as you can."
