She also finds a surly Russian girl, Marina, outside her door, insisting on a reading. Marina’s cards reveal conflict, misery and death and Dolly knows she should feel concerned. But the girl is so disagreeable she’s only too relieved when the reading finally comes to an end.
She would have preferred to forget about the Russian beauty’s malign reading . . .but Marina’s cards come back to disturb Dolly and all those around her, until Death once again leaves his calling card on Tinderbox Lane.

When, one stiflingly hot summer’s day, Dolly reads the cards for the hedonistic Nikki, her usually professional patter is interrupted by a sudden vision – a flash of Nikki’s face, covered in blood and bruises.
A few days later, when the body of a battered woman is washed up by Chiswick Bridge, Dolly is haunted by the belief that Nikki’s time may have come… but can she be sure? And how far is Dolly prepared to go to act on her intuition?
