Lady C. Investigates Omnibus One

Three full-length British historical mysteries in one volume! Join Cordelia, Lady Cornbrook and her eclectic household as she fights crime, unearths secrets, and fends off the advances of unsuitable men.

In An Unmourned Man, Cordelia has lost her husband, her home and she's about to lose her patience.

She should have been enjoying a relaxing stay with Hugo Hawke at his country manor. But Hawke is a cad who is mostly interested in drinking, gambling and - well, all the other things you'd expect a moustachioed Victorian gentleman to pursue.

Then a young man is found dead and it unlocks a series of events that expose the darker side of quiet rural life. There's callisthenics, a surly coachman, a doctor with a suspicious past, laudanum and society balls.

Cordelia has two reasons to find the killer, and only one of those reasons is "justice."

Because if she can't unmask the murderer, her very future is at stake…

Then in Riots and Revelations, trouble follows Cordelia to the wild moors of North Yorkshire. A girl is found dead. And not one, but two handsome strangers are raising suspicions. Cordelia's investigations set her in opposition to the local worthies and her own family.

There's a dashing cavalry officer and a passionate rabble-rousing Chartist, trouble at the Mill, wayward servants, night-time escapades with weaponry, and a large pig.

Can Cordelia really find the killer when she can barely control her own staff?

And finally, In The House of Secrets and Lies, Cordelia finds that discovering the killer is the easy part … but can she bring them to justice?

Politicians tend to have more enemies than friends, so when one of Sir Robert Peel's more radical Tories is poisoned, the list of suspects is long.

Those suspects have money and power. It keeps them out of jail. But someone must pay the price and it's the daughter of Cordelia's butler who is arrested and charged.

Cordelia vows to stop this miscarriage of justice. But she is too rich to go into the lowest parts of Victorian London, too female to go into the clubs and coffee houses, and too scandalous to go to the parties and balls. She has to rely on help, and not just from her unconventional household staff.

Because Hugo Hawke has rolled back into her life. He's a cad, he's a bounder, and he's still angry about how she beat him in a wager.

Can she bring the killer to justice before Hugo wrecks her chances – and before an innocent young girl hangs for it?

These novels contains innuendo but no graphic scenes and may be considered "clean" and suitable for all readers. They are fun and light, tending towards the more "entertaining" side of history. British humour, British history – and British spelling.
