'Frances Brody has made it to the top rank of crime writers' Daily Mail

Taking the perfect photograph can be murder . . .

Yorkshire, 1928. Indomitable sleuth Kate Shackleton is taking a well-deserved break from her detective work and indulging in her other passion: photography. When her local Photographic Society proposes an outing, Kate jumps at the chance to visit Haworth and Stanbury, in the heart of Bronte country, the setting for Wuthering Heights.

But when an obnoxious member of their party is murdered, the group is thrown into disarray. Is the murderer amongst them, or did the loud-mouthed Tobias have more enemies than they might have imagined?

Armed with her wit and wiles, and of course her trusty camera, it's up to Kate to crack the case, and get that perfect shot too . . .

Praise for Frances Brody's Kate Shackleton series:

'The series is right up there with Miss Marple' Sunday Sport

'Frances Brody matches a heroine of free and independent spirit with a vivid evocation of time and place . . . a novel to cherish' Barry Turner, Daily Mail

'Brody's excellent mystery splendidly captures the conflicts and attitudes of the time with well-developed characters' RT Book Reviews

'Kate Shackleton is a splendid heroine' Ann Granger

'Kate Shackleton joins Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs in a subgroup of young, female amateur detectives who survived and were matured by their wartime experiences. As self-reliant women in a society that still regards them a second-class citizens, they make excellent heroines' Literary Review

'Frances Brody skilfully holds our attention, making us want to read on and then look forward to the next Kate Shackleton mystery' Gazette & Herald

'Kate Shackleton is a delightful leading character. The flavour of post First World War England is beautifully portrayed. An enjoyable and gripping mystery story' CrimeSquad.com

'The author keeps us highly entertained with an interesting and exciting plot, impeccably researched, and a style of writing that has the reader turning the pages eagerly to discover the truth of the mystery. Francis Brody is fast becoming "the queen of light crime fiction"' Gazette & Herald

'This is whimsical, colourful stuff and readers will warm to the entrepreneurial yet fragile Kate' Take a Break

'Refreshing and highly entertaining, especially for the winter nights' Gazette & Herald

'Delightful . . . the series is right up there with Miss Marple and the like. On top of that, the covers are fantastic, too' Weekend Sport

MEDIA REVIEWS
Another delightful outing for the star Frances Brody's retro detective series . . . The series is right up there with Miss Marple * Sunday Sport *
Frances Brody skilfully plays on our emotions by signalling the likely guilt of the one person who attracts our sympathy. Newcomers to this well-established series will enjoy earlier titles, too -- Barry Turner * Daily Mail *
