Twenty-three-year-old Katy Speed has always been fascinated by the house across the street. The woman who lives there, Gloria, is the most glamorous neighbour on the avenue, owning a fashionable dress shop in Bexhill-on-Sea. But who is the woman who arrives in the black car most Saturdays while Gloria is at work? Sometimes she brings women to the house, and other times the women come with children.

Then one night, the house burns down. In the wreckage, the bodies of Gloria and her daughter are found. Katy is sure the unexplained strangers must be responsible, until her father is arrested and charged with murder.

Surely the police have arrested the wrong person? Is the rest of the street safe. Can Katy find the truth before it’s too late?

Really enjoyed this one.

Katy is such a nice character and I admire the fact that she felt the need to look for her the person who set fire to the house across the street. Especially as her father had been arrested in relation to it.

I really enjoy reading books by Pearse and this one was no exception.

I found it hard to put this book down. I was gripped from the start. I loved Katy, she's a great character. It was hard reading the police reactions but it was like that in the 60s. Thank goodness things have improved.
