I am very pleased to announce the publication of Flame Tree Publishing's new anthology, Bodies in the Library. It contains my short story 'The Last of the Perivales'.
The fourth case for my Victorian detectives MacAndrew and Smithers, this latest mystery begins with the discovery of a corpse in the otherwise empty library of a London gentlemen's club. The victim is unknown at the establishment and wearing outlandish fancy dress but, nevertheless, he apparently entered without being seen by anyone.
Who is he and how did he die? Ably assisted by the forensic skills of his wife, Annie, The Old Red Fox of Scotland Yard is again on the hunt for clues and yet again he is led down unlikely avenues of inquiry.
