A Case of Considerable Consequence
My YA mystery/adventure novel, “A Case of Considerable Consequence,” is now available in a digital version. Buy the ebook on Amazon.com or purchase a paperback copy here. Contact me if you would like an autographed copy. Lavender Pearl’s wealthy parents disappear while on an expedition to Egypt. When Scotland Yard fails to apprehend any suspects, the 13-year-old heiress to a tea fortune appears next in line to vanish. Lavender and her governess, Miss Eliza Fitzmitten, hire up-and-comer detective, Archer Marbury, and his associate Lord Shadforth, to find the Pearl parents. Will Marbury and Lord Shadforth find them before the young ladies are whisked off to scavenge seaweed and hunt for the elusive giant glowing seahorse with Lavender’s uncle, marine scientist Dr. S.J. Whirly, and his ship’s shady captain and crew? Or will this be an expedition from which they, too, do not return?
This is the first book in a series set in early 20th century England featuring smugglers, sleuths, suffragettes, and sailors. It is the fast-paced story of a wealthy orphan’s narrow escapes from two evils: the criminals who’d like her knocked senseless and the stinking rotting seaweed that just might do the work for them.
