M.K. Graffabout this book: Find out who The Scarlet Wench really is in the mystery series that's been compared to Agatha Christie. The third in the award-winning Nora Tierney Mysteries will have you flipping pages with its compelling characters and complex plot. Why are a series of pranks and accidents happening to a theatre troupe staying at Ramsey Lodge in Cumbria? How does Nora Tierney find herself involved in yet another murder investigation when she's supposed to be furthering her budding relationship with DI Declan Barnes? And what about that baby on the premises when murder happens?
Chapter epigrams are all lines from Noel Coward's play, Blithe Spirit, as an added connection to the plot, and a copy of The Scarlet Wench resides in the archives of Coward's estate. The puzzle's the thing in this absorbing mystery set in England's glorious Lake District.
Hear what readers have to say about The Scarlet Wench: From Lynn T: "The book is a well written mystery. It held my interest and was a fast read for me. Some books are strong in character development, location or plot/storyline. This book is strong in all three areas." And from Melissa W: "I honestly did not know until very late in the book whodunit and I enjoyed the relationships between various players. A great mix of tragedy (murder!) mixed with some humor and a splash of romance."
A mix of amateur sleuth and police procedural, low in copious violence but high on mystery, the setting functions as another character in this traditional English mystery from author M. K. Graff, whose mentor was P. D. James.
