Publisher's Summary

Northumberland, 1809: A beautiful young heiress disappears from her locked bedchamber at Linn Hagh. The local constables are baffled and the townsfolk cry "witchcraft".
The heiress' uncle summons help from Detective Lavender and his assistant, Constable Woods, who face one of their most challenging cases: The servants and local gypsies aren't talking, Helen's siblings are uncooperative, and the sullen local farmers are about to take the law into their own hands.
Lavender and Woods find themselves trapped in the middle of a simmering feud as they uncover a world of family secrets, intrigue and deception in their search for the missing heiress.
Taut, wry, and delightful, The Heiress of Linn Hagh is a rollicking tale featuring Lavender and Woods - a double act worthy of Holmes and Watson.

Ready for the next installment

I made this purchase on the fly and was expecting just a little time filler.

However I was hooked from the first chapter as it is good little mystery, made even stronger by a great performance by the narrator.

Not wanting to give too much away, but it is essentially a mystery / who dunnit surrounding the mysterious disappearance of an heiress from a locked room and a Detective (Lavender) and his Sergeant (Wood) who try and unravel how this could of happened.

I found the narrator's range of voices impressive and will be looking out for other stories that use this actor in the future.

The story moved at pace and I found myself staying up till the early hours trying to get to the end of it. My only criticism and this is a personal preference only - so do not necessarily take my word for it is that in terms of a plot device, the story is concluded or hangs upon a character not seen in the whole book. I personally like who dunnits where we have been introduced to a character at some stage in the story, even if it is momentarily. This gives me a chance to sort of guess was it you, or you or you or at least some buy in to their character.

This sort of left me with a sense of being cheated. I am keen to read the next installment and understand that the author has a 3rd book due out later this year.
I just hope that the aforementioned isn't the authors' trademark.

I'll finish by saying that this is a worthwhile investment in your time and worth it to listen to the range of voices which were very believable.

Shades of Sherlock Holmes

A great find. Story line is quick to start and contines at 'page turner' pace. Characters were very well defined thanks to Michael Page. Enjoyable read and will look for more narratives by Mr Page.
