A family tree… skeletons from the past… too many deaths…
and a reporter on the case.
A mystery death in the family
A woman in fear of her life
The reporter chasing the story
Crime reporter Colin Crampton gets on the trail of a big story when Hobart Birtwhistle, a distant relative of feisty model Shirley Goldsmith, is murdered. It looks like the mystery may lie a century earlier in the death of an Australian gold prospector.
As Colin and Shirley track down the killer, more murders bring the threat closer to home. The pair tangle with London gangsters, an eccentric Scottish lord, and a team of women cricketers in their hunt for the truth… and the shocking secrets of Shirley’s family tree.
“Had me guessing a long time with the clever writing.”
