The Secrets of Wishtide by Kate Saunders (November 2016)

The Secrets of Wishtide by Kate Saunders (November 2016)Mrs Laetitia Rodd is the impoverished widow of an Archdeacon, living modestly in Hampstead.  She is also a private detective of the utmost discretion.  In winter 1850, her brother Frederick, a criminal barrister, introduces her to Sir James Calderstone, a wealthy industrialist who asks Mrs Rodd to investigate the background of an 'unsuitable' woman his son intends to marry.

In the guise of governess, she travels to the family seat, Wishtide, deep in the frozen Lincolnshire countryside, where she soon discovers that the Calderstones have more to hide than most.  As their secrets unfold, the case takes an unpleasant turn when a man is found dead outside a tavern.

Dickensian in its scope and characters, The Secrets of Wishtide introduces an irresistible new detective in a series that will enthral and delight.
