Description
A delightful, character-driven mystery set in 1850s England. Join Laetitia Rodd, the 52-year old widow-turned-detective, in a spellbinding case, full of period detail and genteel intrigue. Having lost her husband, an Archdeacon, some years previously, Laetitia Rodd now resides in a boarding house in Hampstead and makes ends meet living on her wits as a private detective. Asked to pose as a governess to investigate an ‘unsuitable’ match in the family of a wealthy Lincolnshire industrialist, Mrs Rodd’s skills of discreet detection are challenged by the web of secrecy she finds there. When a body is found outside a tavern Laetitia must do all she can to save the family from itself; journeying from polite drawing rooms to Newgate prison in her quest for the truth. 'The Secrets of Wishtide' is the first in a series of Laetitia Rodd mysteries.
