The irrepressible Percy Peach is back, this time as a blissful married man, having finally tied the knot with his longtime love, Detective Sergeant Lucy Blake. Now forced to solve cases without Lucy as his sidekick, Percy finds the adjustment difficult, especially when he's assigned the high-profile murder of television star Adam Cassidy. Of course, Percy's boss, master of the "bleedin', blindin' obvious," Chief Superintendent Thomas Bulstrode Tucker, wants the case solved yesterday, but it's obviously not that easy. There are numerous suspects who could have wanted Cassidy dead, including the actors he's cheated out of continuing roles in his series, the agent he just fired, his long-suffering wife, and his latest "amour." There's a bit less of the irreverent badinage between Peach and Tucker, a reduced role for Lucy, and not quite as much wry wit as in previous Percy Peach books, but this is still a cleverly plotted police procedural with plenty of unexpected twists and engaging characters.
