The Indecent Death of a Madam
She is lying tied to an old metal bed in the crumbling shell of the former Bybuckle Asylum on Stormhaven’s wind-swept seafront. She will not survive the night. The executioner will return.
Once again, DI Tamsin Shah and Abbot Peter join forces to find a murderer who appears linked both to the secretive Stormhaven Etiquette Society and Model Services, the town’s only brothel, discreet but busy in Church Street.
But why the old asylum as the place of her death?
It is a case in which the abbot will find his past disturbed quite as much as his present.
Sleuthing couple DI Tamsin Shah and her cleric uncle, Abbot Peter, join forces once again to solve a murder mystery that reveals dark and difficult secrets from Abbot Peter’s long-forgotten student years.
‘Do we ever leave anything behind?’ he wonders as the killer swings the gun towards him.
