Another well-written murder mystery in the classic style from prolific and versatile author Simon Brett who has also written Blood at the Bookies and Bones Under the Beach Hut (which also feature amateur lady sleuths uptight Carole Seddon and fat and sexy Jude), the Charles Paris theatrical whodunnits such as A Decent Interval, and Blotto, Twinks and the Rodents of the Riviera.
Jude's new boyfriend, Piers, is a fan of real tennis. At a tournament, fat Reggie almost has a heart attack. Some days later, Jude arranges to meet Piers at the isolated court for an early morning lesson and they find Reggie, dead.
Meanwhile, Carole is investigating the local unsolved Lady in the Lake mystery.
A classic whodunnit results.

- I live in Bedford, England. Having retired from teaching; I am now a research student at the University of Bedfordshire researching into Threshold Concepts in the context of A-level Physics. I love reading! I enjoy in particular fiction (mostly great and classic fiction although I also enjoy whodunnits), biography, history and smart thinking. I have also recently become a keen playgoer to London Fringe Theatre. I enjoy mostly classics and I read the playscripts and add those to the blog. I am a member of Bedford Writers' Circle.
