The Scarlet Wench: A Nora Tierney Mystery

By M. K. Graff

Crime & mystery | Paperback, eBook


In the third Nora Tierney Mystery set in England, American writer Nora awaits the arrival of a traveling theatre troupe who will stage Noel Coward's play "Blithe Spirit" at Ramsey Lodge in the Lake District. With her son six months old, Nora must juggle parenting with helping her illustrator and friend Simon Ramsey run the lodge. She's also hoping to further her relationship with the only lodge guest not in the cast: Detective Inspector Declan Barnes, ostensibly there for a hiking trip. When a series of pranks and accidents escalate to murder during a flood that traps everyone, Nora realizes her child is in jeopardy and determines to help Declan unmask a killer. Although contemporary in time period, the book is written in traditional English mystery style with a cast of characters and room layouts. Chapter epigrams are all lines from the play and the play's plot influences the action. Coward's estate has requested a copy of the book for their archives.
