Pensioner Felix Pink is about to find out that it’s never too late for life to go horribly wrong. When he lets himself in to Number Three Black Lane, he’s there to perform an act of kindness and charity: to keep a dying man company as he takes his final breath. But just 15 minutes later Felix is on the run from the police – after making the biggest mistake of his life. Now his routine world is turned upside down as he tries to discover what went wrong, while staying one step ahead of the law.
Perfect for fans of Richard Osman’s The Thursday Murder Club, this is the page-turning, twisty, and often hilarious new crime novel from bestselling author Belinda Bauer.
‘Quirky, charming, intensely human, important . . . and very suspenseful. I loved it.’
