Dartmoor, 1858.

Elizabeth Thornton has every reason to want to escape from home — a ramshackle farm in the middle of nowhere on the wilds of Dartmoor. Since her father’s death, she’s been trapped here, in the clutches of her lascivious uncle.

When a position opens up at Rosebank Hall, she jumps at the chance. She will be a domestic drudge at the beck and call of the house’s cantankerous master.

It’s hardly the career of her dreams. Elizabeth wants to be a doctor, but she’ll do anything to be free of her uncle.

Then one night, the master’s wayward son turns up, wounded in a conflict in a foreign country — damaged in every way a person can be.

But as Elizabeth nurses him back to life, the pair grow closer and everything changes.

But Elizabeth’s uncle isn’t ready to relinquish her yet . . .

Will she keep on fighting for her freedom? Even with her dark past nipping at her heels?

MEET THE DETECTIVES
Chief Inspector Jim Ashworth is a 30-year veteran policeman with a fierce pride in his job. His position has been questioned by his boss, who insists that CID must be modernised. Despite his slightly hostile brown eyes and harsh exterior, he is a loyal and kind soul.

Detective Sergeant Holly Bedford is in her twenties. Holly is a rising star and a force to be reckoned with, as shown by her recent promotion to Detective Sergeant. Although Ashworth doesn’t agree with having women in CID he quickly finds himself warming to Holly.

THE SETTING
Bridgetown is a typical East Midlands town: its nucleus made up of thatched cottages, stone terraces and council properties surrounded by modern estates of detached homes. The busy high street is always bustling with shoppers, particularly on market day when the roads are lined with stalls of all shapes and sizes. The River Thane runs through the small town and is spanned by an impressive stone bridge with seven arches – a historical landmark from which the town derived its name.

YOUR NEW CRIME FICTION OBSESSION STARTS HERE.

Are you seeking an enticing new mystery series, filled with first-rate characters, and breathtaking twists and turns?

Then meet Arnold Landon, mild-mannered history buff turned amateur sleuth.

“The skilful Mr Lewis has made Arnold Landon an unforgettable character.” New York Times

Originally published as A Trout in the Milk.

Arnold Landon finds himself drawn into another bitter dispute over land — in which a defenceless old woman pays the ultimate price.

To the casual observer, Penbrook Farm might seem like a ramshackle hovel, buried deep in the woods of Northumberland.

But to fragile old Sarah Ellis, it’s home. And the developers can have the place over her dead body.

Of course, no one ever expected it to come to that . . .

Least of all Arnold Landon, the peaceable planning officer assigned to Sarah’s case.

Late one night, he calls at the farmhouse to find the place in darkness. By the fire’s dying embers, he can make out a body, lying on the hard stone flags.

Who wanted the farm so badly they were ready to kill for it?

And what has become of Sarah’s battered old prayerbook? In life she carried it with her constantly.

Does it also hold the key to the mystery of her death?

Fans of Elly Griffiths, Peter James, P.D. James, Damien Boyd, Helen H. Durrant, JD Kirk, Bill Kitson and Peter Robinson will devour this intriguing new mystery.

What everyone is saying about Murder in the Farmhouse

“Contains some intriguing bits and pieces of antique lore.”

“A pleasure to pick up.” Irish Times

“Right atmosphere of menace in this highly charged mystery.” Booklist

Good Northern atmosphere and neatly satisfying plot.” Times Literary Supplement

“Always a good read.” Berys

THE DETECTIVE
Planning Officer Arnold Landon is inhibited and painfully aware of his lack of academic credentials. He lives in the North East of England and as self-taught archaeologist he confounds academic experts with his detailed knowledge, which involves him in a local murder. His expertise brings him promotion to the Archaeology Department where he meets frustration, which he nevertheless overcomes by making important discoveries of ancient artefacts while playing a leading role in solving local crimes. A succession of opportunities for further promotion pass him by because of his desire to remain in touch with the detailed history of sites in Northumberland and this leads to more conflict, first with his inadequate superior and then with the stunningly beautiful Karen Stannard and, later in his career, the Italian archaeologist Carmela Cacciatore.

CONSTABLE ALONG THE LANE
A crime wave is coming to Aidensfield. A string of isolated barns are set on fire and Constable Nick soon realises he has an arsonist on his hands. Luckily, there’s help at hand: in the unlikely shape of Arnold Merryweather’s ancient bus.

CONSTABLE THROUGH THE MEADOW
Constable Nick must swap his trusty bike for a mini-van. It’s all in the name of progress, but some things never change. Namely, Nick’s talent for riding into embarrassing scrapes. This time around, his problems involve illicit lovers, bossy wives and countless other characters.

CONSTABLE IN DISGUISE
Constable Nick’s foray into the CID — aka, “Constable in Disguise” — is nothing if not eventful. His first mission calls for extreme stealth. Nick must keep watch on a suspected brothel. But just one misstep up on the roof is enough to blow his cover spectacularly.

CONSTABLE AMONG THE HEATHER
Constable Nick opens his pocketbook to bring us more madcap tales of Aidensfield life. What’s to be done about Albert Potter’s homemade wines and Farmer Bayley’s souped-up tractor — last seen rampaging through the countryside? As always, it’s up to young Nick to keep the peace.

Don’t miss out on the heartwarming humour of the Constable Nick mysteries! YOU GET ALL FIVE OF THE ABOVE BOOKS IN THIS EDITION.

Abandoned by her father and left in the care of an uncle she has never met, eight-year-old Dorothea Ryan finds herself cast away in a big, strange house in the middle of the countryside. No one seems to want her. Her one wish is to return to her old home in London.

But as time passes and hopes of ever going back start to fade, Dorothea becomes more and more enmeshed in her new life at Clifton Park. She begins to wonder just where home really is . . .

As he pulled on his cap and straightened his school tie, Roderick could not help but feel that the real business of life was about to begin once more.

Life has been kind to Roderick Brannan in his first fourteen years, and in the autumn of 1906 there is nothing he wants more than to make a sporting name for himself at school. But when tragedy strikes the Brannan clan, Roderick must return to the family home.

Now seventeen, Roderick is struggling to find his place back in the family — and society. School had been so easy, in a way, with those boyish games and japes. Now he must learn to adapt as he grows into a man of the world.

A charming and perceptive story of one boy’s journey into adulthood set in the bucolic Edwardian countryside.

But these twenty-somethings are growing up fast. They are forging lives and loves of their own, and Eliza feels left behind. When an unexpected proposal of marriage leads Dorothea to a search for her long-lost father in the slums of London, Eliza begins to realize that the world is a bigger and more frightening place than she could have ever imagined.

IT’S A FINE LINE BETWEEN ADORATION AND INFATUATION.

While out riding one day Sister Joan stumbles across an old, ruined chapel in a lonely area of the moors.

It looks abandoned, but it’s not empty.

On one of the pews lies a man. From the smell, Joan guesses he’s been dead for some time.

With Detective Alan Mill away, Joan goes to his deputy, but the police seem strangely reluctant to help.

Meanwhile, a young woman turns up and begs Sister Joan to help find her missing sister. But the police are not interested in the missing woman either . . .

It looks like it’s all down to Joan. But can she help her fellow man and stay out of trouble?

What readers are saying about A Vow of Adoration:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Very good reading for a gentle, well written mystery.” Independent

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Another great addition to Veronica Black’s Sister Joan series — including a surprise ending.” Shannon

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “I found it kept me turning the pages as the strange events mounted up.” Damaskcat

“Black ably evokes the Cornish Moors and fashions an interesting twist on an oft-used device in her conclusion.” Publisher’s Weekly

“As the book begins, it seemed a gentle whodunit, as it went on, it turned into a psychological twisting tale that was quite creepy. Looking forward to reading more from Veronica Black.” Susan

THE DETECTIVE
Sister Joan is thirty-five and a natural rebel. Coming late to her vocation, she still remembers life outside the convent. But having left behind her lover to serve God, she is now committed to her path.
