January MAGNA (Hardcover)
Eldest daughter, Isabella – having failed in her bid to reclaim her family home – is blissfully wed. The task now falls to the next daughter, Jessica. Mannerling, the family estate gambled away by Sir Beverley, remains the passion of his daughters. How fortunate then that the new owner has a marriageable son. In truth, Harry is a brutal letch, a drunkard and a wastrel. Jessica is barely aware of the attentions of handsome, charming Professor Robert Sommerville, whose affection for Jessica is equalled only by the fear that her obsession to secure Mannerling will lead to disaster.

No death could have been more welcome than Evan Morgan’s, or more fitting for the Welcome Home celebrations in the village of Llanddewi. For Morgan had spent the war making money and enemies down in the Vale of Glamorgan with about equal facility. In fact, on the night, it seemed as if a whole posse of murderers had beaten a path to the door of the Manor House. It is left to the ingenuity of Sir Richard Cherrington, an eminent but slightly eccentric archaeologist with a penchant for amateur detection on a visit from Cambridge, to solve this intricate puzzle of motives and alibis.
