Publisher Description

September 1817

Captain Gabriel Lacey travels with Lady Breckenridge to his boyhood home in northern Norfolk only to discover mysterious happenings in and around the Lacey estate. A young woman, cousin of an old friend, has gone missing, strange objects appear in Lacey's ruined house, and the dark windmills on the marshes keep pulling Lacey to them.

The underworld criminal, James Denis, uses Lacey's visit to Norfolk as an opportunity to have Lacey deliver a message to a local squire. A simple task--but one that lands Lacey squarely in international theft and murder. Lacey learns more about Denis's past, and finds himself joining forces with Denis to flush out a brutal killer and save the one person about whom Denis admits to caring.

A Death in Norfolk

A Death in Norfolk 8/10
iBook. Such interesting character development. Lacey, Donata and Grenville travel to his decrepit estate in Norfolk. The manor house is half a ruin, but Renata can see it has elegant, graceful bones and plans with relish to rebuild it. She is good at helping Gabriel's emotions. Denis asks him to deliver a letter that contains one word "corn". Gabriel is concerned because it is a first step in doing what Denis asks, to being owned, but he does owe Denis so he delivers it. When the recipient becomes afraid for his life he helps him escape. Turns out there was theft of (stolen from thieves) paintings, then murder, a missing local girl, and Denis was betrayed by his only trusted friend, Cooper, who tried to kill them both. Gabriel chose to side with Denis, who then executed Cooper. He solves the mysteries and murders, finds out more about his own mother, her affair and death after a miscarriage, accepts a painting from Denis for saving his life, but is exhausted and beat up, and his convictions about right and wrong have been torn apart.
