rsula Marlow thought she was done with death, but when her fiancée Lord Wrotham is arrested on charges of treason her world is turned upside down. It is the winter of 1913, and the British Parliament, unsettled on the question of Home Rule, is shaken over allegations of a plot to sell naval military secrets to Kaiser's Germany and liberate Ireland from English rule. For the first time, Ursula must work together with Chief Inspector Harrison to uncover the truth about Lord Wrotham's involvement as well as his mysterious past.

What's New
  • Read about Fresh Kills, the new collection of original short stories by the authors of The Kill Zone blog, including my story "The Angel in the Garden".
  • See video footage from Ashland Mystery RVTV Noir of me reading an extract from Consequences of Sin and The Serpent and The Scorpion.
  • While we await news regarding the publication of the third Ursula Marlow mystery, Unlikely Traitors, take a sneak peek at the first chapter to get a taste of what lies in store for Lord Oliver Wrotham.
  • I have also written a brand new mystery entitled Lady Coppers which revolves around the Women Police Service volunteers during the First World War. Many people are not aware that women served in this capacity and I have written some background regarding the WPS to give you a flavor of what they did. As a treat I’m also providing a sneak peek of this novel which you can download and read here.
  • Last year I also began a short story in three parts relating events in 1911 and 1912 from Lord Wrotham’s perspective (what he was doing at the start of The Serpent and The Scorpion). The first installment is also available here for download.
