Publisher Description

‘Vivian Conroy's series gets more exciting, adventurous, and dangerous each new books.’ Nikkia's Reviews

A refreshing break by the Cornish seaside puts Lady Alkmene on the trail of a legendary treasure with deadly appeal.

Lady Alkmene has little interest in marriage and abhors her father’s matchmaking. But when he encourages her to visit a potential suitor at an archaeological dig in Cornwall, she agrees if only for the excitement of hunting for treasure.

When she arrives to find her intended under arrest for murder, Lady Alkmene wonders if the death is related to the fortune at stake and the local lore connected with the treasure.

Teaming up again with fellow sleuth Jake Dubois, they dig into fascinating local history and explore personal tensions within the archaeological team. As they unravel a web of secrets and lies, can they expose the real killer before someone else gets hurt?

The twenties have never been so dangerous! Join Lady Alkmene on her hunt for missing heirs, stolen diamonds and legendary treasures in the Lady Alkmene Mysteries:

1. A Proposal to Die For
2. Diamonds of Death
3. Deadly Treasures
4. A Fatal Masquerade

Packed with glamour, danger, eccentric characters and atmospheric locations, each book can be read as standalone and in random order.

About the author

VIVIAN CONROY discovered Agatha Christie at thirteen and devoured all the Poirot and Miss Marple stories. Even more fun than reading was thinking up her own fog-filled alleys, missing heirs and priceless artefacts. So Vivian created feisty Lady Alkmene and reporter Jake Dubois sleuthing in 1920s’ London and the countryside, first appearing in A Proposal to Die For.

Once Upon A Dig

I have enjoyed reading these books. However, I wish there was a bit more depth to the characters, relationships and plot.
It is an easy read and. I love the 2 main characters.
