Black-eyed Nick played a trick, and poor old Fred, lost his head

It’s 1876 and a dead body is found near the mansion of Lady Agatha Aston in Grosvenor Square, London.

The newly formed Detective Branch at Scotland Yard is baffled by the series of grisly murders that seem to come straight from the pages of a ‘penny dreadful’. Who is the demon stalking the streets of London?

Lady Agatha takes matters in hand, ably supported by golf fanatic friend, Betty Stevens, former school hockey captain, ‘Sausage’ Gossage and Talleyrand, her unlucky-in-love Basset hound.

The first Agatha Aston murder mystery is full of laughs, twists and truly abysmal verse. Perfect for fans of Agatha Christie and historical mysteries featuring real life detectives from the period: Jack Whicher, 'Paddington' Pollaky and Dolly Williamson.

What reviewers are saying about Jack Murray’s Kit Aston series:

"...well written with very appealing characters, good plots and just a nice touch of romance. Very little overt violence and no sex."

“A delightful return to the 'golden age' mysteries: gallantry displayed, love interest satisfied, red herrings all round…”

''Sly humour contrasted with thoughtful insights..."

No graphic violence. No cliff hanger ending. This is a clean read with no swearing or sex.
