About the Book

Laughing. Talking. Hours in cafes drinking coffee. Chatting about boys. Girls. Romance. Sharing a plate of chips. It was one of those friendships...I don't know how to explain...like...Love.
Cabaret singer Foxie O'Hara vanished two weeks ago from Mrs Whistle's Lodge. That very same night, Foxie's friend Maggie Brown announced her engagement to local businessman Dougal Cheese. Desperate to find her missing friend, Maggie seeks the help of private eye Dabrowski. To unravel the mystery of Foxie's disappearance, Dabrowski must try to uncover both women's darkest secrets and, in so doing, confront some demons of his own.

Penelope Skinner's The Sound of Heavy Rain premiered at the Crucible Studio, Sheffield, in November 2011 in a co-production between Paines Plough and Sheffield Theatres as part of the first Roundabout Season.
