Vote for Murder – new & updated
It’s 1911, and the women of Ipswich are making a peaceful stand against the unfairness of the voting system. Suffragist Louisa Russell joins the census evasion protest at the Old Museum in Ipswich. In a quiet moment, she explores the back rooms of the museum and finds a diary belonging to a prisoner – and not just any prisoner, but the infamous Mary Cage executed for murdering her husband six decades earlier.
When Louisa’s next-door neighbour dies under suspicious circumstances, the parallels between his death and the poisoning of James Cage become impossible to ignore.
But can there be a link between two deaths sixty years apart? And will Louisa find the poisoner before an innocent woman is convicted?
Vote for Murder is a historical fiction novel based on a true Suffolk crime.
