The Case of the Fool
By E. V. Harte
The second novel in a contemporary new series from Daisy Waugh, writing under a pseudonym, featuring middle-aged Dolly Greene who lives in Barnes, South West London, and solves mysteries with help from her Tarot cards.
Another mystery for the Tarot detective.
Tarot reader Dolly Greene, returning from a Very Happy Holiday in St Lucia with her hot new police sergeant boyfriend, arrives home to find a surly Russian girl waiting for a reading. Marina is young and beautiful but oddly charmless - and her cards reveal nothing but conflict, misery . . . and death. Dolly knows she should feel concerned, but the girl is so disagreeable she's only too relieved when the reading is over and she can escape to catch up with her daughter and neighbours.
And what news! During Dolly's two week absence squatters have taken over No.7, and a mysterious Brazilian woman has moved into No.3. Dolly would prefer to forget about the Russian beauty's malign reading . . . but, like ripples radiating from a stone tossed into Barnes pond, Marina's cards come back to disturb Dolly and all those around her - and Death will surely leave his calling card for someone on Tinderbox Lane.
Praise for The Prime of Ms Dolly Greene:
'It's a pleasure to be in the company of Ms Dolly Greene. She's smart, warm-hearted and a touch psychic - perfect qualities for a sleuth.' Frances Brody
'This book is a must read for any Tarot enthusiast or indeed, any whodunnit fan.' Avril Price, Tarot Consultant and Senior Tutor, College of Psychic Studies, London
