Growing resentment in their marriage, caused by Nancy’s independence and commitment to her London-based catering business, is evident in the fraught family relationships which extends to two wilful stepchildren. To add fuel to the fire, old flames are returning to the sleepy village, memories of Oliver’s first wife, the beautiful yet troubled Avis, refuse to fade and gossip flies around the small community. All in all when the festive season is over and Nancy returns to London it is a relief…until she doesn’t return… When a female corpse is discovered on a lonely road in Chedbury and eventually identified as Mrs Pendrick, there is universal shock, horror and multiple unanswered questions. With all the guests at the New Year’s Eve party potential suspects, CID Webb has his work cut out to track down the killer, and when he fits the pieces of the puzzle together, it forms a picture he would never have expected to see… ‘A Necessary End’ is a gripping crime thriller from bestselling author Anthea Fraser.

Graham Forbes is a disappointment to his mother, who thinks that if he must have a wife, he should have done better. Though her own husband isn't all that satisfactory either.

"The Greening of Mrs Donaldson". Mrs. Donaldson is a conventional middle-class woman beached on the shores of widowhood after a marriage that had been much like many others: happy to begin with, then satisfactory and finally dull. But when she decides to take in two lodgers, her mundane life becomes much more stimulating...
