Murder at the Marquee

Book 8: Eliza Thomson Investigates (Historical Mysteries)

About the Book

The summer village fete, a newly erected marquee and a missing tent peg
Eliza Thomson Investigates…

August 1905: Recently home from their trip to Brighton, Eliza and Connie are deep in preparation for the local village fete.

Half the villagers are involved too, and once the marquee is assembled, it soon fills up with eager stall holders.

With the competition prizes awarded, the afternoon is almost at an end, but everything stops when a body is found hidden amongst the debris. Dead!

With more visitors to the village than usual, and a victim with more enemies than friends, the list of murder suspects is long. But a chance meeting in the local pub may narrow the field.

Eliza and Connie are keen to help the police with their enquiries, but when Inspector Adams arrives from New Scotland Yard, he clearly has something else on his mind. Can Eliza use her diplomatic skills to make sure the killer is found while keeping the peace at the police station?

This is the eighth standalone story in the Eliza Thomson Investigates series. If you like Miss Marple-style murder mysteries and historical women with attitude, you’ll love this historical British series.
