display_description A virtuosic masterpiece of wit, humor, and psychological suspense from cherished author Mary Wesley Middle-aged widow Matilda Poliport has decided to end her life. She puts her papers in order and gives away her beloved pet goose, Gus. She packs a picnic and heads off to the beach to drown herself. But her plans are interrupted by Hugh Warner-wanted by the police for bashing in his mother's skull with a tea tray. Hugh has the same idea as Matilda: to end his own life. But Matilda foils Hugh's suicide, inadvertently saving them both, and the unlikely pair finds itself launched on an adventure. The sparkling Jumping the Queue overflows with wit and wry humor as Mary Wesley examines the hidden costs of love and death.
