When a customer of William Doughty's Bayswater chemist shop dies of strychnine poisoning after drinking medicine he dispensed, William is blamed, and the family faces ruin.
William's daughter, Frances, determines to redeem her ailing father's reputation and save the business. She soon becomes convinced that the death was murder, and, unable to persuade the police, she turns detective. Armed with only her wits, courage and determination, Frances uncovers a startling deception and solves a 10-year-old murder. There will be more deaths, and a secret in her own family will be revealed before the killer is unmasked, and Frances will find that her life has changed forever.

Beatifully written and beautiully read

What about Emma Powell’s performance did you like?

Her voicing of the characters worked well for me and brought an already engaging story even more to life.

Any additional comments?

I have read the print books in this series more than once and am delighted that has been so beautifully performed in audio form. Hopefully the rest of the series will follow in audio format.

I love them. glad to be able to listen

I love this series of books. read them the moment they are published. so the story has to get 5 *. Frances is an excellent character and the plot is well displayed so you know you were given a chance. 4* for narration might be unfair. we have our own idea of character voice so it took some getting used to. can't wait for next one.
