April, 1759.

The apothecary John Rawlings and his new bride are honeymooning in Devon, but the discovery of a badly beaten corpse on a ghost ship cuts their holiday short.

The death of Juliana van Guylder and the subsequent disappearance of her brother, Richard, draw John into an investigation in which the suspects include the mysterious Society of Angels, a lone highwayman, and a phantom coach complete with headless coachman.

Needing answers and knowing he is neglecting his bride in search of the truth, John summons Joe Jago and the Flying Runners from London for help in his investigation.

But his determination to discover the truth puts him in danger...a danger from which he may not be able to escape.

Will Rawlings be able to find the truth or will his pursuit end in tragedy?

‘Death in the West Wind’ is a gripping historical murder mystery that chills to the bone.

Review:
'The Queen of the Georgian historical mystery' The Times 'An effervescent tale... the author organises her large cast and colourful background with skill and gusto through a racily readable drama.' Mail On Sunday 'The charm of Lake's series is the astringent relationship between her two protagonists, which pulls off the trick of appearing both modern and historically persuasive.' The Times 'Lake brings eighteenth century England to life in a fine colourful style... Georgette Heyer... but with the knickers off.' Yorkshire Post
