Judith Potts is seventy-seven years old and blissfully happy. She lives on her own in a faded mansion just outside Marlow, there’s no man in her life to tell her what to do or how much whisky to drink, and to keep herself busy she sets crosswords for The Times newspaper.
One evening, while out swimming in the Thames, Judith witnesses a brutal murder. The local police don’t believe her story, so she decides to investigate for herself, and is soon joined in her quest by two other new friends.
“A crossword clue never makes any sense when you read the surface meaning, but that’s because you haven’t decoded it yet. (page 103)”
Let us meet on Tuesday, 26th of Ocotber 2021 to find out who is going to inherit all the money. Read up till the end of chapter 37 (page 293), ”There was going to be a forth. And it was going to be her.” And together we will solve the mystery.
