  • (1888PressRelease) March 12, 2016 - "Seeing Double" by Pat Herbert, About the Book:When a mysterious middle-aged woman moves in next door to St Stephen's vicarage, she is immediately taken under the wing of Nancy Harper, the Reverend Bernard Paltoquet's redoubtable housekeeper. As the relationship between the two women develops, however, 'Mrs Aitch' begins to entertain suspicions that her new neighbour is not all she seems. Bernard and his friend Dr Robbie MacTavish also begin to think she has a dark secret.

    Another stranger to the world of the St Stephen's vicar comes in the shape of a freakish little man with strange powers which he uses to help Bernard and his friends with their various problems. Other complications ensue, culminating in the brutal slaying of a man on the eve of his wedding and an Old Bailey murder trial.

    But is the verdict safe?

    Excerpt from the Book:
    "He was always skulking in the shed. He spent more time in the garden shed than in the house. He cared about his precious garden more than anything else, always worrying about the weeds that choked the life out of it. So he kept a plentiful supply of weed killer on the shelves in his shed, enough to kill an army. But she only needed to kill one person and he wasn't even a soldier. He was in a reserved occupation, helping to build the radar equipment that was to help win the war.

    She didn't care about winning the war, not anymore. He would have been safer in the army. She measured the arsenic carefully, mixing it with his cocoa."
