One murder to solve and another to cover up. It’ll be tricky, but the OAP residents of Sunset Hall are going to give it their best shot.

It’s an eventful day at Sunset Hall, a house-share for the old and unruly, when the police arrive with news that a body has been discovered next door. Everyone, including Agnes, is secretly relieved that the body in question is not the one they’re currently hiding in the shed (sorry about that, Lillith). Now the answer to their little problem with Lillith may have fallen into their laps. All they have to do is find out who murdered their neighbour, so they can pin Lillith’s death on them, thus killing two old birds with one stone.

To investigate, the senior sleuths (not forgetting Hettie the tortoise) will tangle with sinister bakers, broken stair lifts, inept criminals and their own dark secrets.

The Sunset Years of Agnes Sharp operates in its own skewed universe. Fans of the “Thursday Murder Club” books will find much to like here.’ – The New York Times

‘Leonie Swann’s The Sunset Years of Agnes Sharp is utterly superb. It is as rich and enticing as a perfect cup of cocoa – sweet at first taste, but with something delightfully, deeply, deliciously dark within. A beguiling and unforgettable read.’ – Deanna Raybourn, author of Killers of a Certain Age

‘A mystery like a gingerbread house, rich and warm and sweet and dark. Fans of Richard Osman’s superannuated detectives, welcome to your new club.’ – A. J. Finn, author of The Woman in the Window 

‘Old age isn’t for the faint of heart, which makes Agnes Sharp the perfect senior sleuth to take on a killer.’ – Nora Page, author of Better Off Read

‘A deliriously clever plot with warmly drawn characters, dollops of tension and dark secrets. Brilliant!’ – Helene Tursten, bestselling author of An Elderly Lady Is Up to No Good
