Read full description of the books:
Winter 1918. Armistice Day has come and gone, but the nation is still reeling from the ravages of the First World War.
In a sweeping story of social and emotional conflict, female academic Alexandra Milton is ousted from a tranquil university to work in a small, post-war Scottish town. Her task is to archive a unique bequest of seventeenth-century Spanish documents, but she is attacked by a mysterious intruder. A thief, or is the incident linked to the eccentric benefactress and her mysterious past?
Meanwhile, demobbed soldiers pour back from France in their thousands, but there are no jobs. Town and city are fraught with tension and resentment, which Alexandra struggles to ignore. As she researches a rare volume of satirical interludes, censored at the time for provoking political and religious dissent, she finds eerie similarities with the harsh realities of post-war Britain. To aid her research, she seeks help from the local solicitor. She is drawn to him, but he seems plagued by his own demons and keeps his distance.
Soon convinced that the benefactress died in mysterious circumstances, Alexandra puts aside her personal misgivings and conflicting feelings and digs deeper, despite the fact that she suspects she is being watched. Using her wits to solve the strangest of puzzles, she is drawn back to Glasgow, but then the dockworkers vote to strike. Fearing a revolution as bloody as the recent violence in Russia and Germany, the nation holds its breath as battle lines are drawn. Flung out of her safe world into the turbulent city, Alexandra finds herself at the heart of the maelstrom and must rely on old friends and new allies to avert political disaster.

Read information about the authorBorn in Edinburgh, I grew up in the North West of England, went to the universities of Manchester and Oxford, specialising in 17th-century Spanish comic drama.
Although I started out as a translator, I escaped via a turbulent and circuitous route of journalism and educational publishing to expand my interests to include botanical history, science fiction, local history, architecture, cocktails, wine-making and avoiding DIY. I’m also a fan of Insular art and other early Medieval stuff inspired by my daughter Lauren, a History of Art graduate at Edinburgh.
I returned to writing to combat the ‘empty nest’ syndrome and I’m now the author of several novels and stories. Half the books are historical fiction, while the rest are fantasy adventures, such as Ice Trekker, now reissued. Another title, Half Life, is a co-production with my husband, Rob Deeth, a professor of inorganic computational chemistry and flying buff. This is also re-released on Amazon. Other titles include Tomorrow's Anecdote, a newsroom mystery; True Haven, a Regency fantasy adventure; Dark Interlude, a post-WW1 mystery thriller; and Cloud Pearl, the first of a six-part fantasy series, The Legends of Liria.
Just for fun, I wrote an anthology of short stories on a supernatural theme, going through the seasons; A Walk in the Park; Last Spring; Midsummer Glen and Equinox (a bonus edition featuring all four). The Deed Box is a macabre tale and not in the least auto-biographical. No, no, no.
My father was a writer and I was proud to edit the first of his Cold War thrillers, Not With a Whimper.
Currently, I am working on The Blackfern Conspiracy, an action-packed sequel to The Lost Orchid, as well as a dark murder mystery called Machiavelli’s Acolyte, set in 17th-century Eastern Europe, introducing the death-magnet, Viktor Radislav.
Of course, that’s not his real name.
