About the Book

Murder, intrigue, and an armchair sleuth. Eliza Thomson Investigates…

A suspicious death, a mysterious note, and some cryptic mumbling.

An early morning visitor disturbs the peace at the London townhouse of Dr Archie Thomson and his wife, Eliza.

Supported by money from her wealthy father, Eliza is educated well beyond her peers and spends her time solving the crimes she reads about in the newspaper.

She often sends her findings to the police … and revels in seeing justice done.

But do she and Archie know too much about the body on the doorstep? Enough for the killer to strike again?

Excited to put her amateur sleuthing to the test, Eliza Thomson takes her friend Connie on a trip across London to investigate…

A Deadly Tonic is the first story in the Eliza Thomson Investigates series. If you like Miss Marple-style historical murder mysteries and women sleuths with attitude, you’ll love this introductory novella.
