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.

- Having reviewed over 1200 books on this blog, I have now written two myself. Motherdarling is a story about a search for a missing Will which reveals long-hidden family secrets. The Kids of God is a thriller set in a dystopia ruled by fascist paramilitaries. Both are available as paperbacks and on Kindle through Amazon. I live in Canterbury, England. I lived for more than thirty years in Bedford. Having retired from teaching; I became a research student at the University of Bedfordshire researching into Liminality. I achieved my PhD in 2019. I am now properly retired. I love reading! I enjoy in particular fiction (mostly great and classic fiction although I also enjoy whodunnits), biography, history and smart thinking.
