Book 1 in the Cassandra Fortune Series

If it’s excitement and mystery you’re after, try the bang up to date topic Plague.

Time and Leisure Magazine

This is a tense Parliamentary thriller with the sour tang of authenticity.

In this thrilling murder mystery power, money and love curdle into a deadly brew that could bring down the Mother of all Parliaments. 

Work on a London tube line is halted by the discovery of an ancient plague pit and in it, a very recent corpse. A day later another body is found, also in a plague pit. This victim is linked to the Palace of Westminster, where rumours swirl around the Prime Minister and his rivals. 

As the number of deaths climbs, the media stokes fear. Government assurances are disbelieved. Everyone feels threatened. A disgraced civil servant and a policeman must find the answer before Westminster closes for recess. 

Time is running out. And it’s not clear what – or who – will survive.
