The path for the truth can be treacherous...

Writer Ellen Sawyer is travelling round Britain for her investigation into how un-escorted women are treated in hotels.

On the recommendation of a co-worker, Ellen visits a grand guest house in Wales, only to find it has shut its gates at the height of the season.

If that wasn't unusual enough, a geologist is then found dead in a boat belonging to Commander David Parr - the owner of the establishment.

Soon it becomes apparent that something is very wrong as a conspiracy begins to unfold.

Ellen finds herself swept along in a dangerous adventure as she attempts to discover who is responsible and what has happened... but she is not alone in her desire for the truth...

Four Stars for Danger is a fast-paced mystery that will both thrill and delight in equal measure.
