Originally published on my blog here in May 2000.

The third Fran Varady novel continues with the themes which shaped the first two. Fran is currently working with her friend Ganesh in his uncle's corner shop. She becomes involved with crime once again when a man staggers into the shop, having managed to escape from a car in which he was being abducted. She does not immediately connect the discovery of an envelope containing a set of photographic negatives with this man, until his body turns up on

This is from the Fran Varady series, one of my favourites. Fran has through a variety of events in her life been homeless, and while she now has a home, she is still living close to the edge.
Her friend Ganesh has been left to manage his uncle's newsagency while he is away on a trip, and Fran has been given a job helping out in the shop. Fran has also taken on part-time work from time to time as a private investigator.
Ganesh has decided to get a renovation done on the small washroom behind the sh
This is one of a rather different series from the author of the Meredith and Markby series. Set in London with a protagonist who's young and, at times, nearly homeless. I've read a couple of them so I want to complete the series.
This is my first Ann Granger. I loved the sazzy heroine detective and the way she solved the mystery involving a dead man, a roll of films and a harassed land lady. I would look out for more books involving this heroine.
I like Ann Granger's stories. She always has a different take on things.
As usual a great book with Fran :)
