About the Book
An elderly woman, a hand-written note, and a suspicious accident.
Eliza Thomson Investigates…
August 1902: A family trip to Scotland to visit her in-laws had been Eliza’s idea but as they arrive, she wonders what she’d been thinking! Archie’s parents had never liked her and even now, after twenty years of marriage, they make no effort to hide the fact. At least she has best friend Connie to keep her company.
Not that she’s the only visitor to receive a frosty welcome to the village. Mrs Scott had become nothing but a memory to some of the older residents, but now she’s back, determined to exact revenge for past wrongs.
When a body is found on the beach there are questions to answer. But with the police refusing to believe it was murder, Eliza struggles to uncover a motive.
Itching to discover the truth, Eliza takes matters into her own hands, but in a tight-knit community, no one is willing to betray their neighbour. As she delves deeper into the past, she uncovers a dreadful secret. Perhaps it would have been better if it had stayed hidden…
This is the fifth standalone story in the Eliza Thomson Investigates series. If you like Miss Marple-style murder mysteries, and women sleuths with attitude, you’ll love this historical British series.
