Well, The Asharton Manor Mysteries series continues at a storming pace. Number 3 in the series, The Rhythm of Murder, is now available at Amazon, Apple, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Scribd and Page Foundry.
**Please note, this is a novella-length piece of fiction – about 20 thousand words**
It is 1973. Eve and Janey, two young university students, are en route to a Bristol commune when they take an unexpected detour to the little village of Midford. Seduced by the roguish charms of a young man who picks them up in the village pub, they are astonished to find themselves at Asharton Manor, now the residence of the very wealthy, very famous, very degenerate Blue Turner, lead singer of rock band Dirty Rumours. The golden summer rolls on, full of sex, drugs and rock and roll, but Eve begins to sense that there may be a sinister side to all the hedonism.
And then one day, Janey disappears, seemingly run away… but as Eve begins to question what happened to her friend, she realises that she herself might be in terrible danger…
I’m pleased to say that it’s already charting in the Amazon genre charts for Historical Mysteries. Just waiting for the first review!
The final book in the series will be finished (first draft) tomorrow and available to buy towards the end of August, along with the boxed set of all four books. I’ve so enjoyed writing these – I kind of wish I’d planned for a longer series. But, never mind – the new Kate Redman (Book 5) is next on my list, ready for a September release to keep the fans happy
Having said that, I think I’ll be writing a special Halloween novella to add to The Asharton Manor Mysteries series so watch this space…
