A MURDER IN MICHAELMAS
Published by Piquant Editions, November 2012
Available at Amazon and on Kindle.
This is my first murder mystery, launched at the end of 2012 (see NEWS section). Individual responses have been extremely positive, using words like “exciting”, “gripping”, “humorous”, “enthralling”, and people having to stay up till the early hours to finish it! It’s great when readers say they “can’t put your book down” and buy extra copies for their friends and relatives straightaway.
If you want to know more about it, here is a taster from the back cover:
“A STORY OF SECRET LOVE AND FEAR,
OF OBSESSION AND PERSECUTION,
OF OLD AND NEW LIVES
…AND OLD AND NEW DEATHS
“She’s either a seriously good actress – or she’s seriously dead!”
These are not the words Eve Merry wants to hear on her first day at Oxford University. She is fresh from America and looking forward to an exciting year of study and new friends in her mother’s home country. But when Charlie Boscombe and Martin de Beauchamp-Massey take her punting on the river on the first day of Michaelmas Term, they make an appalling discovery. Lying in a boat stranded up a side stream is a dead girl. She has been strangled and mutilated and wears a badge that says WITCH BITCH FROM HELL.
As Eve and Martin are drawn into the investigation of her murder, they uncover a shady world of secretive student societies, re-enactments of medieval legends, and the practice of witchcraft in this twenty first century medieval city. Eve and Martin and Charlie will find their relationships challenged and changed beyond recognition as they are forced to question their deepest-held beliefs about themselves, each other, and even life itself.
And to face the fact that their lives too are now in danger…”
