A special gift for Reginald Hill fans on Father’s Day – the return of Joe Sixsmith in a beautifully packaged, witty new crime novel

When Chris turns to Joe Sixsmith, PI, he's more than willing to help – well, he hasn't got any other clients – only Joe hadn't counted on being French-kissed then dangled out of a window on the same day. Before long, though, Joe’s on the trail of a conspiracy that starts with missing balls, and ends with murder…
