Tales of Murder and Mystery

The Shrouded Walls

‘We were seventeen when our parents died…Alexander and I did not realise at first that we were destitute. It was Sir Charles Stowell, a friend of my father’s who finally told us the my father’s fortunes and estates, including even the town house in London where we had lived all our lives with our mother, had reverted to my father’s wife in Manchester. My father had been much too gay and carefree to bother to make a will to provide for his mistress and the twins she had borne him…’ When her parents die in a road accident, Marianne, illegitimate daughter of a French emigree and an English gentleman, loses her home and all her worldly goods. She faces life as a governess until she meets Axel Branson, a man who must marry within the year in order to inherit his father’s wealth. Marianne grabs at the chance of a respectable marriage. A remote house in the Kent Marshes is now her home. But distrust of her husband and fear of the house seem to roll in as steadily as the sea mist…

April’s Grave

‘Karen had been trying not to think about her twin sister April since the day she had decided to try not to think about Neville Bennet any more. Now, as she replaced the receiver after speaking to Marney, she discovered that her memories of both of them were scarcely less painful even now after three years.’ Karen and Neville plan a reconciliation in Scotland. April, Karen’s twin sister, had caused the split three years previously, but she has not been seen since. So when Karen finds April’s suitcases buried near the croft, she more than suspects foul play. And then the murderer strikes again …

The devil on Lammas Night

His name was Tristan. he was a tall man with a face people found hard to remember because it was capable of so many different expressions. He had dark eyes, deep set and brilliant. His hands were beautiful, his voice hypnotic. To those who did not know him, he was merely a pleasant young fellow.

But to others, especially to women, he was the Devil. Nicola did not know that their meeting was part of an evil design nor did she know that Tristan had plans for her — plans that would change her forever…
