The Disappearing Typewriter

By Nina Boyd

Crime & mystery, Historical fiction | Paperback, eBook


When the daughter of a working-class family goes missing in Edwardian Huddersfield, her sister joins up with a young police constable and a cycling suffragette to discover what has happened to her. Against a backdrop of mills and millinery, séances and Shakespeare, and shady deals in a solicitor's office, the three investigators search for the truth about Maggie Braithwaite's disappearance. The unfolding tragedy devastates the lives of Maggie's family and friends, but their hopes of a better future are strengthened by the unexpected arrival of a baby, and brave plans to explore new horizons. But nothing can prepare them for the final extraordinary revelation of Maggie's fate.
