Lawrence Harpham Murder Mysteries & Constance Maxwell Dreamwalker Mysteries

Available for Pre-order on Amazon Kindle for 27th December 2021

Maids don’t kill out of spite – no matter how disagreeable… Join Lawrence and Violet in another perplexing case

Suffolk 1903. William Gardiner is on trial for the cold-hearted stabbing of Rose Harsent. In a last-ditch attempt to save his life, concerned parties call on Lawrence Harpham for help, but someone is stalking the good people of Peasenhall and confounding the investigation.

Meanwhile, Violet takes on a poisoning puzzle from the past. Was the bad-tempered housemaid a killer or just a convenient suspect?

With two historical crimes and the distraction of a mysterious stranger at Netherwood, will they solve the case before time runs out?

The Maleficent Maid is a compelling mystery based on a true crime.

    Second to the murder in the Red Barn, this is one of the celebrated Suffolk murder mysteries and, in my opinion, has much more interest than the former.
