Selected by Indie Booksellers for the March 2011 Indie Next List
“Shades of Jane Eyre meets Sherlock Holmes, circa 1776: two murders near a country manor in West Sussex; a Lord accused; and insanity, fire, orphans. Attempting to solve the mystery are an early forensic doctor, Gabriel Crowther, and his neighbor, Mrs. Westerman, the unconventional mistress of Caveley Park. This is the first in what I hope will be a long series featuring two fabulously appealing detectives.”
-- Karen Corvello, R.J. Julia Booksellers, Madison, CT


Description

An intricate historical novel about a forbidding country estate and the unlikely forensic duo who set out to uncover its deadly secrets.
