Lindsay Townsendabout this book: 'An Older Evil' is a historical mystery. The main character is Alyson, a woman of guile and experience, a widow of Bath. I based her partly on Chaucer's own vivid Wife of Bath, but my Alyson is very much her own woman. She is a little older than my romance heroines, but still sexy.
Alyson is an expert in love, in marriage and in the cloth trade. When a stranger is murdered close to her home in Bath, she knows the authorities have not done a fair or good investigation. Soon, to protect her own household, she must begin to search for the killer herself.
But there are dark and powerful forces ranged against her. Alyson will need all her wits simply to survive.
'An Older Evil' is the first novel in a series, The Widow of Bath historical mysteries.
• "The story opens with a dramatic event, the murder of a young man, witnessed by Alyson Weaver and committed on her land, but his identity and who wants him dead are a mystery. From this premise, the story sets off at a run and maintains a cracking pace throughout ..."
