What antique would you kill for?

By C L Miller


Freya Lockwood has avoided the quaint English village in which she grew up for the last 20 years. That is until news arrives that Arthur Crockleford, antiques dealer and Freya’s estranged mentor, has died – and the circumstances seem suspicious.

Following both clues & instincts

But when a letter from Arthur is delivered, sent just days before his death, and an ordinary pine chest concealing Arthur’s journals are revealed, Freya finds herself sucked back into a life she’d sworn to leave behind.

Joining forces with her eccentric Aunt Carole, Arthur’s staunch best friend, Freya follows both clues and her instincts to an old manor house for an ‘antiques enthusiasts weekend’. But not is all as it seems; the antiques are bad reproductions and the guests all have something to hide.

What a treat! A unique and compelling debut by an outstanding author – I couldn’t stop turning the pages! The fabulously drawn characters leapt from the page and drew me into this engrossing murder mystery.

– Kathryn Croft, author of The Girl in Room 12
