Blood at the Bookies Summary

Blood at the Bookies: The Fethering Mysteries by Simon Brett

The bets are on whodunnit when a body is found at the bookies . . .

Jude has never been averse to a bit of a flutter; her friend Carole, on the other hand, thinks that the local betting shop is a den of iniquity. But when Jude stumbles upon the body of Polish immigrant Tadeusz Jankowski - the race is on to find his killer.

The odds aren't looking good. No one seems to know anything about the mysterious Tadek - even his sister can't shed any light on what he was doing in Fethering.

Who was the anonymous woman in the bookies who seems to have vanished? Why was Tadek interested in the local university? And who is the `Fifi' Tadek spoke of with his dying breath?

As they question the local residents, Carol finds an unexpected friend in an inveterate gambler and Jude finds herself in potentially more trouble than she can handle with a lecherous and charming drama professor.

In this race there can only be one winner, but with no leads and several suspects in the running will our lady detectives be pipped at the post by a cold and calculating killer?
