Synopsis of book»

At Leighford High, the ever-resourceful Peter ‘Mad Max’ Maxwell is acting as Head of History whilst Peter Moss partakes in an American exchange.  His counterpart is Hector Gold, accompanied to Leighford by his eccentric family. In particular, Hector’s father-in-law, Jeff O’Malley is quite a character, gate-crashing the local poker school, much to the dismay of its members. 

When events take a sinister turn and one of the poker school’s members, is found murdered, newly-promoted Inspector Jacquie Carpenter-Maxwell and Henry Hall investigate, with the assistance of Maxwell, of course. Something is crooked in this case and Maxwell is sure that it is more than meets the eye.

What Critics Have Said»

'The seventeenth Mad Max Maxwell book, and one of the very best I've ever read. Maxwell is on sparkling form in this hilarious romp with just a touch of danger...The magic lies in the dialogue and the relationships...Terrific fun, but when you think about it, it's finely crafted in a John Creasey kind of way, and a very fine detective fiction indeed...Unmissable.'Books Monthly
