This omnibus brings together four novels, books 5–8, from Amy Myers’ very popular ‘Marsh and Daughter’ series.
The first novel to feature is Murder in the Mist, in whichex-cop Peter Marsh and his daughter Georgia find themselves in a neglected garden, where blue love-in-a-mist flowers are fighting for survival amongst the overgrown weeds. It ceases to seem so idyllic when they discover that in 1949, Alwyn Field, one of the Fernbourne Five, hanged himself from one of its trees...
Murder Takes the Stage is the next story, and Peter and Georgia Marsh are in the Kentish seaside resort of Broadstairs, on the trail of Georgia’s missing brother Rick, when they come across the strange tale of a haunted fish and chip shop. Tom, the ‘ghost’, was one of the Three Joeys, a clown trio who worked on the pier in the 1950s. Tom was accused of the murder of his beautiful wife and apparently committed suicide – though his sweetheart, now seventy-four years old, has never given up hope of finding him again.
Book 7 in the series is Murder on the Old Road. When Georgia and Peter Marsh encounter a group of oddly-dressed ‘pilgrims’ about to set out along the Old Road to Canterbury, it is clear that more is at stake than the play the Chillingham Drama Group is shortly to perform.
The collection concludes with Murder in Abbott’s Folly, in which curiosity about a murder draws father-and-daughter team Peter and Georgia Marsh to attend a summer gala in honour of Jane Austen at Stourdens, a fast-decaying Georgian mansion in Kent. But instead of enjoying a literary-themed day out, they are thrust into a tense situation rapidly approaching boiling point...
This omnibus makes ideal reading for all who enjoy cosy English crime novels in the Christie tradition. Perfect for curling up by the fire on a winter’s evening or long hours relaxing on a beach in the summer, it will delight Myers’ many fans and no doubt gain her many more.
