Murder can strike at any hour...

It's the late 1950s in tranquil Temple Regis, Devon.

For holidaymakers it's a glorious time of breathtaking scenery, picnics on beaches, and flocks of tourists on their summertime holidays.

But for Miss Judy Dimont, this is all a trifle dull. As a reporter for local rag, The Riviera Express, she needs scandal and intrigue - and one morning, as the clock strikes the quarter hour, she gets it. A woman has been shot dead in one of Buntorama's upmarket holiday huts, the toffee-nosed rival hotelier next door is rubbing his hands with glee, and Judy and her trusty moped Herbert are off like a shot to survey the scene of the crime.

But nobody can tell her who the dead girl is and there's no clear motive. To have a story to write, Judy must solve the case - and the intrepid Miss Dimont will leave no pebble unturned until the truth is out!
