'Frances Brody has made it to the top rank of crime writers' Daily Mail

'Brody's writing is like her central character Kate Shackleton: witty, acerbic and very, very perceptive' Ann Cleeves, award-winning author of the Vera Stanhope mysteries
1929, London.

In the darkness before dawn, a London railway porter discovers a man's body as he unloads a special goods train from Yorkshire, all means of identification stripped away. Hitting a dead end, Scotland Yard call on indomitable sleuth Kate Shackleton, hoping her local Yorkshire knowledge and undoubted skills at winkling out information will produce the results they need.

1929, Yorkshire.

Fears of unrest in the Yorkshire coalfields mean that Kate must conduct her investigation with the utmost secrecy. But when she discovers that another murder occurred around the same time as the mysterious body on the train, she is convinced there must be a connection. Using her sharp instincts and persuasive charm, she begins to uncover a web of intrigue that edges her closer to the truth. But with attempts being made on her life, Kate needs all the strength and resourcefulness she can muster, before she becomes the next victim . . .

The eleventh delightful murder mystery in the bestselling Kate Shackleton series set in 1920s Yorkshire.

Review:

Frances Brody has made it to the top rank of crime writers (Daily Mail)

The series is right up there with Miss Marple (Sunday Sport)

Delightful (People's Friend)

Frances Brody matches a heroine of free and independent spirit with a vivid evocation of time and place . . . a novel to cherish (Barry Turner Daily Mail)

Brody's excellent mystery splendidly captures the conflicts and attitudes of the time with well-developed characters (RT Book Reviews)

Kate Shackleton is a splendid heroine (Ann Granger)

Kate Shackleton joins Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs in a subgroup of young, female amateur detectives who survived and were matured by their wartime experiences. As self-reliant women in a society that still regards them a second-class citizens, they make excellent heroines (Literary Review)

Frances Brody skilfully holds our attention, making us want to read on and then look forward to the next Kate Shackleton mystery (Gazette & Herald)

Kate Shackleton is a delightful leading character. The flavour of post First World War England is beautifully portrayed. An enjoyable and gripping mystery story (CrimeSquad.com)

This is whimsical, colourful stuff and readers will warm to the entrepreneurial yet fragile Kate (Take a Break)
