The Indecent Death of a Madam

The Stormhaven Etiquette Society, a secretive affair, unafraid to name and shame those who transgress.

Model Services, the town’s only brothel, a discreet but busy presence in Church Street.

Bybuckle Asylum, a desolate shell on the seafront that housed over 700 mental patients prior to the dubious dream of ‘care in the community’.

What brings these three together is a cold-blooded execution that both shocks and confounds. For lying dead in the empty asylum, tied to an old metal bed frame, is a pillar of the establishment. 

Or is she? 

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.

The Indecent Death of a Madam is published on 21 September 2017 by Marylebone House
