Publisher's Summary

Number One Amazon Best Seller - Contemporary British Fiction

Number One Amazon Best Seller - International Mystery & Crime

It’s 1927 and Great Britain is sweltering in an unprecedented heatwave. On the morning after her 80th birthday party, Lady Fitzhugh is discovered bound and butchered in her bed, with her family and staff the prime suspects....

Whilst holidaying at nearby Meadowford Village, Detective Dermot Carlyle is asked to help investigate the brutal murder. The clues all point to a robbery gone wrong, but Dermot suspects that there is more to the horrific crime. The Fitzhughs’ secrets take Dermot along a path linking some of the biggest events of the British Colonial Empire - from India to Africa, to the dark days of the Great War itself.

As more murders take place, Dermot is racing against time to discover the killer’s identity. What are the family hiding, why did Lady Fitzhugh have to die, and what horror was committed in the colonies that led to this trail of death and deceit?

Critic Reviews

"A modern interpretation of a golden age detective novel, in the spirit of Agatha Christie and other writers of crime of the interwar period. A very satisfying homage." (Paul C.W. Beatty, award-winning author of Children of Fire and member of the Crime Writers' Association)
