The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle meets Magpie Murders in this atmospheric locked room murder mystery set in 1950’s London, introducing Marion Lane, a bookish detective-in-training and exciting new heroine in fiction.
The letter was short. A name, a time, a place.
Marion Lane and the Midnight Murder plunges readers into the heart of 1950s London, to the secret tunnels that exist far beneath the city streets. There, a mysterious group of detectives recruited for Miss Brickett’s Investigations & Inquiries use their cunning and gadgets to solve crimes that have stumped Scotland Yard.
Late one night in April, 1958, Michelle White -- a filing assistant at Miss Brickett’s -- receives a letter with a shocking warning. White goes to investigate but as the clock strikes midnight, she is murdered by a killer she can’t see – her death the only sign she wasn’t alone.
Marion Lane, a first year Inquirer-in-training, finds herself being drawn into the murder investigation when her colleague is framed for the crime. To clear their name and find the true killer, she must sort through the hidden alliances at Miss Brickett’s and secrets dating back to WWII.
Masterful, clever, and deliciously suspenseful, Marion Lane and the Midnight Murder is a fresh take on the Agatha Christie styled locked room mystery with an exciting new heroine detective at the helm.
