Murder Mysteries 4: The Head Is Dead

By Tanya Landman

Fourth in a series of brilliantly addictive, tightly plotted murder mysteries featuring the irrepressible Poppy Fields.

Poppy Fields and best friend Graham design a murder mystery trail for the school fayre, choosing the headteacher to be the corpse at the end. But when the first person to finish discovers that the head really is dead, Poppy and Graham set out on a real life murder trail.
