From the Publisher

At "The Hollyhocks" old people''s home, the inhabitants are "waiting for the scythe." As they do, Lady Celia runs a blackmail business on the side, Mr. Cross keeps a tally of residents'' deaths, and Mrs. Bellamy decides she can''t take it any more and slits her throat.

From Our Editors

At the Hollyhocks Old People's Home, the inhabitants are waiting for 'the scythe.' Still, that doesn't keep them from engaging in other activities. Lady Celia runs a lucrative blackmailing business. Mr. Cross keeps a tally of dead residents on the back of his wardrobe. In the meantime, Mrs. Green seems to be hiding a mysterious past. Then one day, two newcomers arrive to disrupt the routine. Terrible secrets, unusual sexual preferences and dark humour combine for a deliciously wicked effect in The Waiting Game. Bernice Rubens' tragicomedy will make you gasp and laugh and cry -- all on the same page.
