Carole had never had such a bad hair day! The last thing she expected when she went for a trim at Connies Clip Joint was to find the body of Kyra, Connies assistant, in the back room, strangled. Immediately involving her friend and neighbour Jude, Carole becomes determined to investigate the death. Meanwhile Kyras boyfriend Nathan Locke has vanished. His family, an eccentric, controlling bunch dont seem overly concerned. Instead they are bizarrely obsessed with a family board game which seems to provide a host of clues as to Nathans whereabouts. Can Carole and Jude unravel the clues and discover the truth before someone is falsely accused, or before the killer makes a second deadly move? And how many haircuts can a middle-aged sleuth have before people become suspicious?!
