Bury Her Deep

Historischer Krimi von Catriona McPherson

Dear Alec, Remember my engagement yesterday? The annual duty luncheon for the Reverend Mr Tait from which and whom I expected only boredom? I could hardly have been more wrong, Alec dear, and I am this minute packing to follow the Reverend home to his manse in Fife, there to attend a meeting of the Rural Women’s Institute. Hardly a house party at which one would usually leap, I grant you, but not only is the man himself a perfect darling — imagine Father Christmas shaved clean and draped in tweed — but his parish, it seems, heaves with more violent passions than a Buenos Aires bordello.

Oh! Ein Pfarrhaus voller gewalttätiger Leidenschaft! “A great read. Excellent characterisations, lots of red herrings, plot twists and intrigue in a well written mystery which evokes the language, life and times and social norms of rural east coast Scotland in the 1920s.” (Leserin) (12 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 324 Seiten noch günstig?

The Winter Ground

Historischer Krimi von Catriona McPherson

When a circus comes to spend the winter at the neighbouring estate to Gilverton, Dandy Gilver’s two sons are cock-a-hoop and they are not alone in their excitement. The allure of Tumbling Topsy Turvy, Tiny Truman and the Troupe Prebezhensky also draw the attention of the fast set, who would never normally be seen dead with the nouveau riche Mr & Mrs Albert Wilson. ‚The name, darling, tells you everything you need to know.‘ But when Dandy Gilver is asked to investigate a series of nasty tricks taking place in the circus she discovers, under the colourful charms on the surface of circus life, a hotbed of passion and resentment she cannot begin to understand.

Ein Zirkus überwintert – mit harten Hindernissen! „The Winter Ground is a brilliant mystery for lovers of circus lore, history of Scotland or just the British murder mystery genre. The author writes so deeply of circus culture that you would think she had been a performer.” (Leserin) (7 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 304 Seiten noch günstig?

Dandy Gilver and an Unsuitable Day for a Murder

Historischer Krimi von Catriona McPherson

Friday 3rd June, 1927 Dear Alec, ‘Careful what you wish for, lest it come true’ is my new motto, and here is why. I was summoned to Dunfermline, that old grey town, in the matter of a missing heiress. She had flounced off in a sulk over forbidden love and I, suspecting elopement, was loath to take the job of scouring guesthouses to find the the little madam and her paramour. Before I could wriggle out of it, though, there was a murder in the mix – or was it suicide

Konkurrenz zwischen Geschäften, nicht ganz ohne Mord!“In this tale of dueling department stores in a small Scottish town, she unsnarls, strand by strand, the complicated inter-relationships between the members of the two families who own the stores… or tries to. It’s a tangle that has everything to do with murder. It all adds up to a very fun read full of iconoclastic characters, all with devious motives which have nothing to do with the outward selves they present.” (Leser) (21 Rezensionen / 3,4 Sterne), 316 Seiten noch günstig?
