Margery Blandon has led an upright, principled life guided by the wisdom of desktop calendars.What went wrong? Margery suspects her that her first born, Walter, has betrayed her. Her second son, Morris, might have committed a crime, and her only daughter is almost certainly trying to kill her. Then there’s Pat, her life-long neighbour and enemy – now demented – who possibly knows the truth about everything. Should she throw herself from the 43rd floor, or should she abandon everything she believes and embrace her enemy for the sake of what’s right?

Review

“As anyone who read Rosalie Ham’s debut novel, The Dressmaker, knows, she is a true original. Blessed with an astringently unsentimental tone and a talent for creating memorably eccentric characters, Ham also possesses a confidently brisk and mischievous sense of plot… ‘The authenticity of every detail is never in doubt from this consummate but unshowy storyteller”
