With the local constabulary completely stumped, Scotland Yard's Chief Detective Inspector Pollard and Detective Sergeant Toye are called in to investigate. But the further Pollard & Toye delve into their inquiries, the more complicated the case becomes...Death of an Old Girl is the first cosy village mystery in the Pollard & Toye crime series: an intriguing police procedural set in rural England.
