The Calling Card Murders

Book 9: Eliza Thomson Investigates (Historical Mysteries)

About the Book

A prestigious department store, a fatal stabbing, and four calling cards.
Eliza Thomson Investigates

September 1905: In need of an outfit for Connie’s special day, Eliza treats them to a day’s shopping at her favourite London store. After a successful morning, tragedy strikes.

Connie is knocked to the ground as two men push past them, but there is no help at hand. Feet away, a man lies dying, a knife protruding from his side.

With no witnesses, and the identity of the victim a mystery, the only clue is the four calling cards found in the man’s jacket pocket. Can they shed any light on his identity?

Once Inspector Adams is assigned to the case, he instructs Eliza to return to Moreton and leave the investigation to him. But when a second body is found in the village, Eliza refuses to do nothing.

With Connie’s big day approaching, time is of the essence. Can Eliza help the police find the killer before they strike again?

This is the ninth 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.
