Publisher's Summary

September 1817

Captain Gabriel Lacey travels with Lady Breckenridge to his boyhood home in northern Norfolk only to discover mysterious happenings in and around the Lacey estate. A young woman, cousin of an old friend, has gone missing, strange objects appear in Lacey's ruined house, and the dark windmills on the marshes keep pulling Lacey to them.

The underworld criminal, James Denis, uses Lacey's visit to Norfolk as an opportunity to have Lacey deliver a message to a local squire. A simple task - but one that lands Lacey squarely in international theft and murder. Lacey learns more about Denis's past, and finds himself joining forces with Denis to flush out a brutal killer and save the one person about whom Denis admits to caring.

The series gets better and better.

I hope Audible is able to record the 4 books which they have not yet done.

Jennifer Ashley knows how to write a great mystery!

A Death in Norfolk, a Captain Lacey mystery, is a must read for all mystery book lovers.

Jennifer Ashley’s Captain Lacey mysteries get better and better with each passing novel. A Death in Norfolk is filled with intrigue, twist and turns. On this journey the reader learns details of James Dennis, Cpt. Lacey’s relationships with his father and mother. These details helps the reader understand how Lacey became the man that he is; honest, strong and compassionate.

Going home

This is not the best of the Lacey mysteries, but is moves the overall story forward. Lacey goes back to Norfolk to claim his family home, even if the house is a wreck and going back to Norfolk brings back painful memories from his past.

The story includes his friends and enemies from previous books, but it is not as interesting as some of the previous books.
