Murder is easy ... when it doesn't look like murder
Tess Morgan has finally made her dream of restoring beautiful Kilfenora House and Gardens into a reality.
But during rehearsals for the play that forms the opening weekend's flagship event, her dream turns into a nightmare when a devastating accident looks set to ruin her carefully laid plans.
There are rumours that Kilfenora House is cursed, but this feels personal, and becomes increasingly terrifying when more than one body is discovered. Could someone be closing in on Tess herself?
Clarissa Westmacott, ex star of stage and screen, certainly believes so, particularly when she learns that purple-flowered aconite has been picked from the Poison Garden. And Clarissa will stop at nothing to protect the friend she has come to see as a daughter...

Praise for this book

"An utterly compelling murder mystery. Perfectly plotted, with echoes of the Golden Age, this is a fabulously clever book. Masterful!" - Victoria Dowd

"A vivid cast of characters, endless intrigue and all the fun of a Golden Age mystery await you at Kilfenora House." - Catherine Ryan Howard

"Has all the hallmarks of a 'modern' golden age murder mystery: a fabulous country house setting, an eccentric cast, and a regular drip feed of dead bodies. Add in an old curse, a determined amateur sleuth, and an ill-omened play and you have an offering that will delight fans of the genre." - Vaseem Khan

"The Mystery of Four is that perfect blend - a gorgeous setting hiding dark secrets, lovable characters who may not be all the seem, and a twisting, winding story that keeps the reader turning pages. I loved it!" - Andrea Mara

"Witty, twisty and featuring my favourite antiheroine in a long time." - Alex Marwood

"A brilliantly twisty thriller featuring three of my favourite things - a country house, a curse, and a cat!" - Roz Watkins
