Lizzie: There were some long awaited changes in Dead of Winter. Could they herald a change in the series? So do you have any plans for another series? I have also had ideas for a couple of stand-alone novels as opposed to another series but then Requiem Mass was meant to be a one off so who knows?

Dead of Winter

My thanks to Liz for taking the time to talk to us. Books Are:. Requiem Mass Fatal Legacy Grave Doubts Innocent Blood Dead of Winter Published by Robert Hale, 31 July Although Catherine Paget's uncle, Maximilian Paget, has become increasingly irascible over the years, he is the only living relation she has ever known and the person who took her in and cared for her when she was orphaned as a young child, and she loves him dearly.

However, now that Catherine is a grown woman she wishes that her uncle would respect her viewpoint and take her into his confidence. Max is particularly disapproving of Catherine's friendship with Marguerite Danvers, who encourages Catherine's interest in spiritualism, but he approves of Marguerite's brother, Michael Danvers, who is courting Catherine.

When Uncle Max tells Catherine that he has inherited a dilapidated property called Mayfield Court, she is eager to know more and concerned about Uncle Max's strange manner when speaking of the bequest but she knows he will not tell her anything about the past. Catherine and Uncle Max go to Mayfield Court to inspect the property, although it seems to Catherine that her uncle's main purpose is to go through all the old papers left at the house; whether to preserve or destroy them is unclear.

The woman employed in the village to help at the house tells Catherine the story of little Helen, a child who visited, stayed for one night at Mayfield Court and was never seen again. During the thirty years since Helen's disappearance many people have claimed to see the ghost of a young girl. Catherine believes in spiritualism and is sure that she herself has received messages from the dead. She twice sees what she believes to be a ghost and the second time it leads her to the discovery of the skeleton of a child.

The first thing they need to do is discover the identity of the victim, for there is evidence that the child called Helen survived and is now respectably married with children of her own. Uncle Max takes Catherine back to London, but tragedy follows them, as does danger and treachery. It takes all of Jackson and Bottomley's skill and determination to discover the truth behind the covetousness and evil that lay at the heart of the crimes, as they strive for justice for the dead child and to prevent harm coming to another innocent victim.

The Ghosts of Mayfield Court has a very interesting structure, with just over one-third of the book told in Catherine's First Person viewpoint, as if, some years later she is writing an account of what had happened. The rest of the book is a Third Person account of the investigation carried out by Jackson and Bottomley.


  1. Luna Perpetua (Italian Edition).
  2. Pretty Girls are Pierced.
  3. Comment Survivre Aux Vacances de Vos Enfants (52 Idées :) (French Edition).

This structure works very well and the move from one viewpoint to another progresses smoothly. Catherine is an appealing heroine and the police, both rural and in London, are well portrayed, especially the wonderful Sergeant Bottomley. Although he will never gain promotion because he is 'too fond of the bottle,' Bottomley is a shrewd, hardworking policeman, and a generous, kind-hearted man; the father of eight daughters, 'all living,' he is deeply affected by the discovery of the child's skeleton, and it is he who forms the main link between Catherine's narrative and the description of the official investigation.

The Ghosts of Mayfield Court has a complex plot because of its multi-stranded back story but it is also a compelling and very enjoyable read.

Reviewer: Carol Westron. Norman Russell was born in Whitson, Lancashire, but has lived most of his life in Liverpool. After graduating from Jesus College, Oxford, where he studied English, he served in the army in the Bahamas and Jamaica. He returned to Oxford to study for a diploma in education and later was awarded the degree of Doctor of Philosophy from the University of London. He now writes full time. Carol Westron is a successful short story writer and a Creative Writing teacher. Her crime novels are set both in contemporary and Victorian times. An average of sixteen people per day go missing in Ireland, say police statistics, and teenage girls make up a large proportion of them.

But two missing girls in one small border town in the same month is unusual, to say the least. Forensic psychologist Paula Maguire returns to the home town she abandoned twelve years earlier to join a specialist squad set up to investigate cold missing persons cases, only to find herself thrown in at the sharp end now that the two girls have become the priority. Like her native Northern Ireland, Maguire is damaged by a past which has left too many scars and rifts for healing to come easily. Northern Ireland itself is almost another character in the tangled plot.

It has all this, and is a great page-turner as well. Reviewer: Lynne Patrick.

Claire McGowan grew up in a small village in Northern Ireland. After a degree in English and French from Oxford University she moved to London and worked in the charity sector. The Lost is her second novel. Lynne Patrick has been a writer ever since she could pick up a pen, and has enjoyed success with short stories, reviews and feature journalism, but never, alas, with a novel. She crossed to the dark side to become a publisher for a few years, and is proud to have launched several careers which are now burgeoning. She lives on the edge of rural Derbyshire in a house groaning with books, about half of them crime fiction.

Published by OpenRoadMedia available on Kindle. Ann and Jon Marcel are divorced, but unlike many divorced couples they are not just on good terms but are good friends. Jon, an outstandingly talented artist based in New Orleans, has even found premises for Ann, a shop with a flat above so she can run the shop as a card and craft shop and also find time for her own painting.

But Jon himself has been seriously wounded and taken into intensive care and so cannot account for what happened; the police believe that Gina fought to save her life although the murder weapon cannot be found. However, Ann believes that it would have been totally out of character for Jon to have murdered anyone. I rather enjoyed this book and do recommend it. It is an example of something rare in British crime fiction - the one-off story.

It is in fact a romantic suspense story, of which there are more in US crime fiction. Reviewer: Radmila May. She is a best-selling US writer, who writes primarily romance novels. She also writes under her maiden name Heather Graham as well as the pen name Shannon Drake. November ISBN: As Simmy sets out to deliver a bouquet of flowers to a lady living on the northern fringe of Ambleside, with Christmas approaching, she is feeling optimistic. When later that day Detective Inspector Moxon appears at the shop and asks Simmy to accompany him to the police station to answer some questions, she is first astounded, and then shocked, when she discovers that she has been named as an alibi by a man whom the police suspect of killing an old lady.

  • Soon Simmy is immersed in the complex relationships of the parties involved and by doing so unwittingly herself becomes a target. This is a interesting mystery with some unexpectedly startling twists which took me by surprise. I love village mysteries, they are always only solved by delving back into the past, which in itself is fascinating, as old secrets surface.

    Good characterisation and some marvellous descriptions of The Lake District. Highly recommended. Reviewer: Lizzie Hayes.

    This was established in The dramatic death of a young glamorous soap star in a car crash in the early hours of the morning is the beginning of this investigation. The death is fraught with complications starting with the disappearance of the driver of the second car involved in the death who has apparently survived a horrific collision unhurt.

    Another death of a young actress follows, also with the killer achieving a miraculous disappearance. Through dogged persistence she eventually finds the end of the cord to pull to unravel what has happened.

    All hinges on the motivation of the killer and the danger he presents comes surprisingly close to home. Geraldine is, as you would expect in such a testosterone-filled environment, a steely character but she is, on occasion, forced to doubt her own instincts. Factors in her private life are sketched in lightly. The story is exciting and also shows the grunt work needed by the police when they try to track down such a peculiar killer.

    There is no need to have read the previous books - this one, while referencing some previous events and relationships stands alone as an investigation, and is highly recommended. Leigh Russell started this series with Cut Short and has 5 other books featuring Geraldine. Items in search results.
