AN ENCHANTING COZY MYSTERY FROM A BESTSELLING AUTHOR.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “An engaging cozy crime book, with a lovely setting in one of my favourite cities, Durham.” Portia

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “I love this series and this is an excellent addition . . . Highly recommended.” Annarella

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Tackling sensitive issues with a deft hand, the author writes an engrossing and entertaining tale. With likeable protagonists in both Dorothy and Alan and a colourful supporting cast, this is a worthy addition to this long running series.” Intheamazone

“Sleuths with a highly developed sense of fairness fight prejudice . . . A travelogue, a complex mystery, and an empathetic look at the horrific nature of dementia.” Kirkus

Something sinister lies beyond the picturesque cobblestones of the historic city of Durham.

Dorothy and Alan visit their old friend David Tregarth in Durham. Their days are filled with castle tours, cathedral services, and wandering up and down the steep cobbled lanes.

That is until David’s elderly great aunt is accused of murdering a fellow patient at her nursing home. And with her faltering memory, she’s the perfect scapegoat.

When a second patient is attacked, Dorothy is determined to prove Aunt Amanda’s innocence.

But how can Dorothy clear an elderly woman of murder when she can’t remember if she did it or not?

Perfect for fans of Stella Cameron, Faith Martin, Agatha Christie, Frances Evesham, Betty Rowlands, or M.C. Beaton.
