Jordan Lacy, Latching's zany private eye, is thrown in the deep end - literally - when fishing rods start disappearing from the pier. Next, stolen pedigree puppies start adding to her case load. But it all gets more serious when one of the anglers is found hanging in the bell tower of a church, his past life shrouded in mystery. Then a cache of diamonds go missing from a raided security box and a revengeful gang member is determined to find out where they are hidden. The personal stakes are upped as a series of planned road crashes shakes Jordan's sense of security. And when the love of her life, DI James, announces his transfer to Yorkshire, she knows she will have to claw her way back to sanity.

"Humorous situations, a few unlikely characters, and the British seashore. Who could ask for more?" Library Journal on Hide and Die "Entertaining reading, thanks to the always appealing Miss Lacey, an abundance of clever plot twists, and a surprising conclusion" Booklist on Jest and Die "An absolute treat of a novel... clever and well-constructed, but it's Lacey herself who makes the novel so special; she is truly a delightful creation" Booklist starred review for Pray and Die"
