Looking into a cold case with ties to the Whiteley familys past and their magnificent home, Dungeon House, Hannah Scarlett begins to question what really happened the night Malcolm Whiteley killed his wife and daughter, then himself.
The Dungeon House Paperback edition by Martin Edwards
In taking an order for a retirement party in Staveley, Simmy Brown is pulled into her most challenging investigation. When a daughter starts accusing her own mother of murder, Simmy, Ben and Bonnie find themselves taking different sides. With her relationships under strain, can Simmy leave her own concerns behind to discover just who the killer is?
Persimmon `Simmy' Brown is reminded that life in the Lake District is far from relaxing when her fiance Chris discovers the body of his friend brutally strangled in Grasmere. As old grudges against the dead man are revealed, and with Chris's increasingly odd behaviour, Simmy begins to wonder if he is more involved in the murder than he is saying.
Winter has arrived in Windermere, and has bought the death of Frances Henderson, the best friend of Simmy Brown's mother. Having known the Henderson family all of her life, Simmy struggles to cope with the loss. When Frances's husband is violently murdered in his home, Simmy must accept that the family she was once close to holds some dark secrets.
Persimmon 'Simmy' Brown's florist shop in Windermere is struggling for money, so a contract to provide floral displays for a hotel in Hawkshead couldn't have arrived at a better moment. However, Simmy's association with the hotel soon turns sinister when she finds a body in the lake.
Twenty years after her brother Callum mysteriously vanished, Orla Payne is still haunted by his disappearance. In spite of DCI Hannah Scarlett's doubt that there is anything to be done on such a long-dead case, when Orla is found dead, she discovers that investigating the past can throw up some very dangerous truths indeed.
Death has come twice to Ravenbank, a remote community in England's Lake District, each time on Hallowe'en. Daniel Kind, a specialist in the history of murder, becomes fascinated by the old cases, and wonders whether the obvious suspects really did commit the crimes.
In the peaceful village of Old Sawrey, Warren Howe is brutally slaughtered with his own scythe by a mysterious hooded figure. Years later a tip-off sparks the interest of DCI Hannah Scarlett, head of the local Cold Case Review Team. With the help of historian Daniel Kind, Hannah digs and discovers that, in Old Sawrey, old sins cast long shadows.
Historian Daniel Kind is finding winter in the Lake District tough, especially as he fears that his girlfriend Miranda may just up and leave. She wouldn't be the first. Years ago, Emma Bestwick left and never came back, her disappearance never resolved, much to the chagrin of DCI Hannah Scarlett, head of the local Cold Case Review Team.
