Description:

Bridgestead is a peaceful spot: a babbling brook, rolling hills and a working mill at its heart. Pretty and remote, nothing exceptional happens... Until the day that Master of the Mill Joshua Braithwaite goes missing in dramatic circumstances, never to be heard of again. Now Joshua's daughter is getting married and wants one last attempt at finding her father. Has he run off with his mistress, or was he murdered for his mounting coffers? Kate Shackleton has always loved solving puzzles. So who better to get to the bottom of Joshua's mysterious disappearance? But as Kate taps into the lives of the Bridgestead dwellers, she opens cracks that some would kill to keep closed...

Quotes:

Four out of four stars. ...a lovely start to a series that will have historical fiction fans well-pleased and looking forward to more from a new, very appealing heroine., The Mystery Reader

Brody's winning tale of textile industry shenanigans is shot through with local color., The Independent (UK)

The village setting, the intricate plot and the plucky heroine are reminiscent of Agatha Christie, but Brody's story is far darker, as adultery and chicanery meld with brutality in this page-turner that resonates long after the final sentence is read., Richmond Times-Dispatch

This well-plotted and atmospheric tale is enriched by technical expertise and a vividly imagined Yorkshire setting. Kate Shackleton joins Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs in a sub-group of young female amateur detectives who survived and were matured by their wartime experiences... They make excellent heroines., Literary Review

The first in a planned series introduces a refreshingly complex heroine and adds a fine feeling for the postwar period., Kirkus
