The Heir of Hawksclaw

(2016)
A Novella by

 
Some families will do anything to protect their secrets...

In this Victorian gothic mystery from a Daphne du Maurier Award-winning author, governess Medora Yates sets out for mysterious Hawksclaw House in the dying days of 1856, but she has no idea what is in store. Hired to care for her employers' young son, she arrives in Yorkshire to find the boy too sick to meet her or Gerard Redfern, the new tutor. When Mr. Hawksclaw abruptly announces the next day that his son has died, Medora and Redfern know that there is far more to the matter than he is telling them.

Was the child a victim of foul play, perhaps even by one of his parents? Or is the story of his death a lie to conceal something else just as sinister? Medora and Redfern set out to discover the truth. Along the way their investigation will unearth dark family secrets, past tragedy, and the true fate of the heir of Hawksclaw... which all culminate in an astonishing act of redemption.

Readers who enjoy the Victorian mysteries of Anne Perry and Barbara Michaels, as well as those who have come to love DeWees's Victorian romantic suspense novels such as With This Curse and Sea of Secrets, will relish The Heir of Hawksclaw.
