You don't attract trouble. You go looking for it.

Disheartened by her recent performance, Beatrice Stubbs takes a sabbatical from the Metropolitan Police for a gourmet tour of Northern Spain. In Vitoria, she encounters a distant acquaintance. Beautiful, bloody-minded journalist Ana Herrero is onto a story.
Beatrice, scenting adventure, offers her expertise. The two women are sucked into a mystery of missing persons, violent threats, mutilated bodies and industrial-scale fraud. They are out of their depth. With no official authority and unsure who to trust, they find themselves up to their necks in corruption, blackmail and Rioja.
Beatrice calls for the cavalry. The boys are back, and this time, it’s a matter of taste. But when her instincts prove fallible, Beatrice discovers that justice is a matter of interpretation.

“I heartily recommend this as an exciting and intelligent read for fans of crime fiction.” Judging Covers

“Reminds me of Nicci French's new series featuring Dr Frieda Klein.” Book’d Out

“I was hooked from start to finish by the plot, the rising tension and looming menace, and the many-faceted personalities—even minor characters leap off the page.” Goodreads

“Read this, and you'll be desperate for a seat on a Vitoria balcony with a glass of white Rioja, a plate of pintxos and the next Beatrice Stubbs to accompany them.” Annemarie Neary, author of A Parachute in the Lime Tree

My social profiles on...
As a child, Jill read so obsessively she got kicked out of the school library. But her passion for words continued. She graduated in English Literature and Theatre Studies from the University of Wales and set up a theatre company.

Since then, as an actor, director, teacher, writer and journalist, she's worked in fifteen countries. She learnt something from each one.
Now, with her husband and three dogs, Jill lives in Switzerland, a country with four languages and mountains of new words.

She works as a language trainer all over Europe, co-edits The Woolf, is a founder member of Triskele Books and European correspondent to Words with JAM magazine, plus a reviewer for Bookmuse. But most of the time, she writes.
