Heads You Lose by Rob Johnson
Many thanks also to retired West Yorkshire Police Inspector Kevin Robinson for technical advice on British police procedures.
The assignment in Greece might have been the answer to Trevor and Sandra’s problems except for one thing. Someone was trying to frame them for murder… with a watermelon.
‘Money doesn’t come any easier,’ Sandra had said when they accepted the job of looking after the ageing Marcus Ingleby at his villa in Greece, but when a neighbour brings a gift for the old man, the prospect of spending most of the rest of their lives in a Greek prison becomes a terrifying reality.
Meanwhile, Ingleby has problems of his own. During his seventy-odd years, his cupboard has accumulated plenty of skeletons, one of which is about to be rattled by a couple of ex-cons and a retired police inspector from his murky past.
“A highly entertaining, well-constructed screwball comedy that is as enjoyable as it is well written.” – Keith Nixon for Big Al’s Books and Pals
