Synopsis

Carole had never had such a bad hair day! The last thing she expected when she went for a trim at 'Connie's Clip Joint' was to find the body of Kyra, Connie's assistant, in the back room, strangled. Immediately involving her friend and neighbour Jude, Carole becomes determined to investigate the death. Meanwhile Kyra's boyfriend Nathan Locke has vanished. His family, an eccentric, controlling bunch don't seem overly concerned. Instead they are bizarrely obsessed with a family board game which seems to provide a host of clues as to Nathan's whereabouts. Can Carole and Jude unravel the clues and discover the truth before someone is falsely accused, or before the killer makes a second deadly move? And how many haircuts can a middle-aged sleuth have before people become suspicious?
