Dying Roots 3d book.png




Sylvia Scutlash, orphan, widow and hairdresser, has only one remaining relative, her unloving Uncle Arthur. The last thing she expected was to compete with him to inherit the family business—the Wavy Lady hair salon. The other last thing she expected was to find there was a special agency that connects hairdressers all over the world. When she finds herself initiated into the United Guild of Hairdressers, she is sent off on a mission to England to solve the mystery behind a hair dye malfunction at the great Vitale Crassoon’s salon. In London, Sylvia must get to the root of the hair dye disaster and her own family tree.

In this colourful and quirky story, the big-hearted Sylvia finds her way around London and her family tree with a bunch of larger-than-life, vibrant characters. Half mystery, half search for meaning, this is a fast-paced, amateur-detective story set in 1977 between the Australian outback and the glitzy glamour of London’s hairdressing world.

All that glitters is not gold at the 1987 Golden Scissors Hairdressers competition. Sylvia Scutlash, agent to the United Guild of Hairdressers, is glad to escape from her sleepy Perth suburb in Australia and head to the bright lights of Las Vegas. The sumptuous Pharoah’s Palace hotel is awash with hairdressers—the ideal place for her to solve her latest mission: to find out who or what is threatening the very fabric of the guild.

But murder by scissors and the dreamy DI Danny Good distracts Sylvia, along with a beefy new judge on the award panel, and a pushy sales rep for a new range of hair product. While her good friend, the famous Vitale Crassoon, faces numerous incidents that are impeding his chances of winning the competition, and Humphrey Lebonne’s gambling addiction keeps Sylvia on her toes, can she discover where the hairdressers’ data is going and save UGH? Will DI Good find the murderer? And, above all, who will win the prestigious Golden Scissors trophy?
