From one of the founding members of the Crime Writers' Association.
Rose Lawler was a retired schoolmistress but, fortunately for her on at least two occasions, still in very good shape. The charter tour of Italy which was meant to be so easy and relaxing turned out quite otherwise. For the English party were being used as cover for Gwen Chilton, luckless tool of a criminal, and it was soon being shadowed by another character whose motives were dubious. Rose’s wide sympathies and alertness brought her under suspicion of knowing too much.
