Blackstone Fell

by Martin Edwards | 01 September 2022
Hardback
Rachel Savernake investigates a bizarre locked-room puzzle in this delicious Gothic mystery from the winner of the CWA Diamond Dagger. 1930. Nell Fagan is a journalist on the trail of a intriguing and bizarre mystery: in 1606, a man vanished from a locked gatehouse in a remote Yorkshire village, and 300 years later, it happened again. Nell confides in the best sleuth she knows, judge's daughter Rachel Savernake. Thank goodness she did, because barely a week later Nell disappears, and Rachel is left to put together the pieces of the puzzle. Looking for answers, Rachel travels to lonely Blackstone Fell in Yorkshire, with its eerie moor and sinister tower. With help from her friend Jacob Flint - who's determined to expose a fraudulent clairvoyant - Rachel will risk her life to bring an end to the disappearances and bring the truth to light. A dazzling mystery peopled by clerics and medics; journalists and judges, Blackstone Fell explores the shadowy borderlands between spiritual and scientific; between sanity and madness; and between virtue and deadly sin. Praise for Blackstone Fell : 'Martin Edwards celebrates and satirises the genre with wit and affection... He leaves you wanting more.' The Times 'Perfect for those who love a locked-room mystery... with a wonderful golden age of crime feel.' Belfast Telegraph 'Martin Edwards holds his own with the best of classic crime.' Daily Mail 'Ingeniously plotted and racily told... Blackstone Fell is more or less impossible to put down - this is Edwards on the top of his form.' Dorothy L Sayers Society Bulletin
