Death of an Honourable Gent

Book 2: Eliza Thomson Investigates (Historical Mysteries)

About the Book

A debutante ball, an abandoned croquet mallet, and a body floating in the lake.
Eliza Thomson Investigates…

April 1901: A weekend house party at the stately home of the Earl of Lowton … with an invitation to his daughter’s debutante ball. It should have been perfect.

And it would have been … had it not been for the body found dead in the lake.

The timing couldn’t be worse. With only hours to go before the biggest event in the Lowton’s social calendar, the family have no intention of letting it ruin the occasion.

But Eliza isn’t family.

Determined to prove the death was murder, Eliza enlists the help of husband Archie, and best friend Connie. But it soon becomes apparent that not everyone wants to see justice done.

Can Eliza fight against powerful vested interests and expose a killer? Or is she risking too much for the sake of her principles?

This is the third 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.
