A Woman Unknown

A Kate Shackleton Mystery (Volume 4)

Frances Brody

Minotaur Books

Frances Brody's "refreshingly complex heroine" (Kirkus Reviews), picks up a case that takes her to the refined streets of 1920s Harrogate

Not since Jacqueline Winspear has a writer captured the traditional British mystery as wonderfully as Frances Brody in her Kate Shackleton novels.  A winning combination of both intricate plotting and nostalgic post-WWI English country setting, A Medal for Murder will appeal to fans of both classic murder mysteries in the vein of Agatha Christie as well as readers of historical mystery series set in 1920s England, two popular subgenres.

As the novel opens, it's no rest for the wicked when Kate Shackleton picks up her second professional sleuthing case. But exposing the culprit of a pawn-shop robbery turns sinister when her investigation takes her to the wealthy neighborhoods of Harrogate—and murder is only one step behind.  A night at the theater should have been just what the doctor ordered, until Kate stumbles across a body in the doorway. The knife sticking out of its chest definitely suggests a killer in the theatre's midst. Kate likes nothing better than a mystery—except solving it. So when a ransom note demands GBP1,000 for the safe return of the play's leading lady, Kate must piece together clues—and lure criminals out of their lairs.
