(A book in the Detective Lavender Mystery series)
A Novella by


London 1803: Following the discovery of a body down a well, newly-promoted Principal Officer, Stephen Lavender, is summoned to Hampstead by Constable Ned Woods to help solve the gruesome murder of a young barmaid.

Confronted with class prejudice and the indifference of the authorities, the keen, young detective embarks on a frantic race against time to gather evidence to convict the killers. But when help is offered from an unlikely source, Lavender must make a decision between justice or truth that carries serious consequences for both his career and his friendship with Ned.

'The Death of Irish Nell' is a prequel to the full-length novel, ‘The Willow Marsh Murder’ (publication: February 1st, 2020). Both of them can be read as standalone works of fiction.
