    A crime novel unlike any other. Eighty-one-year-old Maud has vascular dementia but that won’t stop her searching for her missing friend, Elizabeth. There’s a 70-year-old mystery to solve after all. See, Maud’s sister has also disappeared, last seen during the Second World War. Could her sinister husband Frank, a black market racketeer be to blame?

    A heartfelt portrait of one woman’s battle with a cruel disease that’s as witty as it is moving.
