Detectives Sloan and Crosby are at a loss as to why Jack Haines’s greenhouse has been broken into; some expensive orchids have been destroyed but nothing seems to be missing. But something sinister is at work, and their suspicions are confirmed when a woman goes missing…
What initially seems to be hardly a crime at all quickly unravels into a complex puzzle of secrets and lies in this latest edition of the lauded Sloan and Crosby series.
What The Critics Said
'A terrific yarn, with another excellent detective pairing, exquisite backgrounds and brilliant dialogue.'
'Full of intriguing clues, gently humorous and thoroughly entertaining, this diverting mystery snowballs from a case of petty vandalism to a full-blown murder investigation'
The Good Book Guide
'The plot unfolds with the pace and wit that are familiar hallmarks of Air'ds series...I found DEAD HEADING to be one of the most ingenious and above all one of the wittiest of Aird's most recent books: it's a joy from start to finish'
