that features an honorable English family brothers Joseph and Matthew

children in the family home in tranquil Cambridgeshire, seems safe.

She also writes the popular novels featuring Victorian private investigator William Monk - among them, Funeral in Blue, Slaves of Obsession, The Twisted Root, A Breach of Promise, and The Silent Cry.
