A Don Packham and Frank Mitchell Mystery.
At a London pub one February night, a lock-in is in progress. Thirteen members and supporters of the Hollow Head's darts team are celebrating a great victory over a rival house. But by midnight, one of them is dead, her head caved in with a concrete doorstop in the ladies' lavatory.
Detective Inspector Don Packham and newly promoted Detective Constable Frank Mitchell soon establish that no stranger or passer-by killed Yvonne Wood. And it doesn't take them long to realize that of the dozen suspects, precisely twelve had motives for committing this murder ...
"One of the most original, engaging, and likeable detectives to come down the pike in many a year. In the pantheon of British detectives, he belongs right up there with Frost, Morse, and Dalgliesh." - Booklist.
“Light and clever.” - Kirkus.
"A mystery that I can recommend to anyone, whether they prefer cozy or hard-boiled." - Deadly Pleasures.
"Enough solid ratiocination to keep the most diehard of fans happy … and hilariously funny." - CADS.
"As fresh and original as their creator's droll narrative voice." - Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine.
