Lord James Harrington and the Whitsun Mystery
Meet Lord James Harrington and his delightful wife, Beth; residents of the tiny village of Cavendish, deep in the heart of West Sussex in England. They adore hosting seasonal events, running their country hotel, keeping the local folklore alive and listening to the latest murder mystery on the wireless. But mysteries don’t always remain on the airwaves…
It’s a busy time on the Cavendish calendar; the Whitsun dance, Cavendish in Bloom and the week-long steam rally are all being celebrated and James is looking forward to an enjoyable couple of weeks.
Having picked up a commendation from the Sussex police, he and Beth are given a curious task by DCI George Lane and his superior, Superintendent Higgins and that is to observe the behaviour of Theodore Livingstone, Member of Parliament, who has a second home in Cavendish and living well beyond his means.
James and Beth discover that Theodore is not to be crossed and that his son, Maximillian, is the editor of a salacious gossip magazine. Both are boorish men who are driven by money and power. But when a body is discovered, with links to the Livingstone family, James cannot help but put his sleuthing skills to the test.
Is a prominent MP really mixed up in drugs? Why are some of the villagers acting so strange? What hold does Theodore have over young British starlet, Dulcie Faye? Why doesn’t DCI Lane trust his own people? Who is the mysterious man following James?
Join James, Beth and the regulars as they celebrate Whitsun and embark on another thrilling adventure. << All Books
