Coming soon: June launch

Barbara Hennessy, a local artist, plunges 100 feet to her death at an overstretched London hospital.  Ahmad Qabbani, the hospital cleaner and a Syrian refugee, is arrested for her murder.  He protests his innocence but why has he given her the story of Aladdin to read and why does he shake uncontrollably in times of stress?  And Barbara’s Will includes some unusual provisions.  Judith Burton and Constance Lamb are reunited to investigate, not only uncovering Ahmad’s secrets but also those of Barbara’s family, her lawyer and the hospital too.
