November 2010 Book of the Month.

A lovely series that see’s Lady Rose Summer fighting crime in Edwardian England. Just the right balance of crime, romance and fun. A brilliant escape.


Edwardian Murder Mystery Series:
1. Snobbery with Violence
2. Hasty Death
3. Sick of Shadows
4. Our Lady of Pain


Sick of Shadows by M. C. Beaton

It would seem that even a pretend engagement cannot keep Lady Rose Summer from trouble. Bored with endless parties, teas and balls, she befriends Dolly Tremaine, a beautiful young girl newly arrived from the country and overwhelmed by the demands of the Season. Their friendship is cut tragically short, however, when Dolly is found dead in the river, with flowers in her hair and blood on her breast. Rose immediately summons her fiance, investigator Captain Harry Cathcart, to help solve the mystery of Dolly's death - and to keep her from becoming the murderer's next victim.

About the Author

M. C. Beaton

M. C. Beaton is the renowned bestselling author of the Hamish Macbeth and Agatha Raisin series. She has written many detective and romance novels alongside having an illustrious career on Fleet Street. Already a household name and, according to Anne Robinson, a ‘national treasure’, she is ranked among John Grisham and Maeve Binchy as a heavyweight of the publishing world. She divides her time between Paris and a village in the Cotswolds that is very much like Agatha's beloved Carsely.

    Went to the clinic to get blood taken. All those little tubes! Felt like Tony Hancock. I am rhesus negative. "They're monkeys, aren't they?"

    Lovely actor Matt McCooey - if Bill Wong looked like this, Agatha Raisin wouldn’t have looked at another man.

    Michele Buck, the head of Mammoth TV who are producing Agatha for Sky, is a diplomat extraordinary. What a loss to the Foreign Office.

    Went to a read through of the Sky TV production of the Quiche of Death. It's not the book as you know it, Jim, but great fun family viewing.
