Lord Francis and Lady Ottilia Fanshawe have suffered a devastating blow.

So when he hears about a murder at the seaside town of Weymouth, an idea starts to form…

A young girl’s body has been discovered, laid out in an open coffin, surrounded by candles.

The staged scene, and the fact that the victim was a member of a theatrical troupe, suggests one of her colleagues is the killer.

Knowing Ottilia’s sharp intuition and penchant for solving mysteries, Francis brings her to the murder site.

Can the case spark Ottilia’s interest? Will the intrepid ‘Lady Fan’ once more make an appearance?

And can she solve the mystery of the Candlelit Coffin…?

THE CANDLELIT COFFIN is the fourth book in the Lady Fan Mystery series: historical romance murder mysteries with a courageous woman sleuth embarking on a traditional British, private investigation in eighteenth-century London.
