The Heiress of Linn Hagh (Detective Lavender Mysteries, nr. 1)
Northumberland, 1809: A beautiful young heiress disappears from her locked bedchamber at Linn Hagh.
The local constables are baffled and the townsfolk cry witchcraft.
The heiress s uncle summons help from Detective Lavender and his assistant, Constable Woods, who face one of their most challenging cases: The servants and local gypsies aren t talking; Helen s siblings are uncooperative; and the sullen local farmers are about to take the law into their own hands.
Lavender and Woods find themselves trapped in the middle of a simmering feud as they uncover a world of family secrets, intrigue and deception in their search for the missing heiress.
Taut, wry and delightful, "The Heiress of Linn Hagh" is a rollicking tale featuring Lavender and Woods a double act worthy of Holmes and Watson."
