‘How was she killed?’

‘Strangled, I gather, with her own silk scarf.’

A murder involving a group of Americans on an English ‘Mystery Tour’ has actress Tessa Crichton investigating members of the group, including a young lady recently released from a psychiatric hospital who claims she is seeing ghosts.

When a woman is found strangled, Tessa is on the case, along with detective husband Robin. But it will be Tessa’s insight that helps Robin to solve the case as events reach a suspenseful climax.

Treble Exposure was originally published in 1987. This new edition features an introduction and afterword by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.


‘A light hand, an engaging ease, and an inventive mind: all welcome qualities in the writing of crime novels.’ Financial Times

‘What makes her such good company – and the whole point of Miss Morice’s book is to converse, as it were, with Tessa Crichton – is not her deductive skill but her shrewd eye and quick tongue for people and situations.’ Daily Telegraph
