I also am enjoying her Orkneyinga Murders series, set in very early times. The first one for that is Tomb for an Eagle (Orkneyinga Murders Book 1) by Lexie Conyngham Tomb for an Eagle.

message 36: by Sandy (new)

Sandy | 1156 comments For any Jim Stringer there is finally a new book, Powder Smoke. It was published in January but doesn't seem to be available in the US yet. I'm happy.


message 37: by Helen (new)

Helen (helenfrominyocounty) | 90 comments Out today, available on Kindle Unlimited if you have it: Foxe and the Path into Darkness by William Savage, #8 in this series set in Georgian times. Love Ashmole Foxe and his investigating!

A new historical mystery, being published 22 April: The Secret Life of Miss Mary Bennet by Katherine Crowley. As you might be able to tell, the protag is one of the "middle" Bennet sisters (cue up Pride and Prejudice), who manages to stumble upon murderous goings-on.


message 38: by James (new)

James | 3 comments For a limited time. Read a free copy of the sixth mystery in my best-selling and award-winning Portia of the Pacific series at NetGalley.
