Description:

Plagued with guilt, Freda Simonson, the only witness to the murder of the landlord of Langcliffe's tavern, believes that her testimony may have convicted the wrong man, but when she passes, the case seems closed. It just so happens, though, that Freda's nephew is courting the renowned amateur sleuth Kate Shackleton, who has decided to holiday in Langcliffe with her teenage niece, Harriet. When Harriet strikes up a friendship with a local girl whose young brother is missing, the search leads Kate to uncover a suspicious death and an illicit affair. As the present mysteries merge with the past's mistakes, Kate is thrust into the secrets that Freda left behind and realizes that Freda has entrusted her with solving the murder from beyond the grave.

Quotes:

It felt so different, so fresh and so clever, a story written with a lot of subtlety and gentleness, and also with a great dose of humor. Even though the plot was complex...it was still a very neat, logical read, and the characters were brilliant representatives of this age...I really can't wait for more., On My Bookshelf

Frances Brody matches a heroine of free and independent spirit with a vivid evocation of time and place. [A] Death in the Dales is a novel to cherish., Daily Mail (UK)

Cozy it may be, but this story is also convincing, compelling, and clever...Once you've met Kate Shackleton, you'll want to read more of her!, Crime Review

Narrator Elaine Claxton faultlessly re-creates 1926 rural England and charming private investigator Kate Shackleton. The picturesque countryside, difficult farm life, and secretive, superstitious locals are well portrayed, and the production sounds much like an appealing old-fashioned radio play., AudioFile Magazine

Claxton's best creations are housekeeper Mrs. Sugden, who attempts to aid Shackleton's inquiry, and courtly Mr. Wigglesworth. Both add a wonderful counterbalance to this satisfying mystery., AudioFile Magazine
