Description
1. Take one quiet Yorkshire Village—Bridgestead is a peaceful spot with a babbling brook, rolling hills and a working mill at its heart. 2. Add a mysterious disappearance—Master of the Mill Joshua Braithwaite went missing under dramatic circumstances during the war years, never to be heard from again. 3. Sprinkle in a bit of scandal—Now Joshua's daughter is getting married and wants one last attempt at finding her father. Did he run off with his mistress, or was he murdered for his mounting coffers? And finally, mix with Kate Shackleton, amateur sleuth extraordinaire, a curious and independent young woman with a knack for finding people and upsetting applecarts. Her debut mystery is woven with the fabric of Yorkshire in the upheavals of the 1920s.

"This well-plotted and atmospheric tale is enriched by technical expertise and a vividly imagined Yorkshire setting. Kate Shackleton joins Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs in a sub-group of young female amateur detectives who survived and were matured by their wartime experiences.... They make excellent heroines."—Literary Review
