When Jude wanders into Fethering's local bookies she has no idea that she will shortly be investigating the murder of Polish immigrant Tadeusz Jankowski. With her partner in crime, friend and next-door-neighbour Carole, she's determined to discover who killed him - and why?

Blackwell North Amer
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 Tadeusz - 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 Tadeusz interested in the local university? And who is the 'Fifi' he spoke of with his dying breath?
As they question the local residents, Carole 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?

and good to the end.
