Speak for the Dead – Kindle Sale

My wife Annie’s latest Inspector Abbs mystery “Speak for the Dead” is on sale for this week only on Kindle for just 99 pence/cents.

This is the first time we’ve offered the book at a lower price.

The novel is also available as a paperback.

Secrets and murder in the fog of Victorian London.

When a grieving architect is stabbed by an intruder, the case seems simple enough. Only Inspector Josiah Abbs begs to differ. A stranger at Scotland Yard, Abbs must untangle a web of secrets and deceit, to find a murderer and make his mark.

In 1874, the Metropolis is changing, as streets are torn down and new buildings put up by the month. Meanwhile, in public halls and darkened parlours, the spiritualist movement is at its height… Finding his way about the fog-shrouded city, Abbs will risk everything to get justice for the dead.

Read the first two books in the series – “A Seaside Mourning” and “A Christmas Malice”.

“Speak for the Dead” includes an historical note on the Kennington area of London, where it’s set, as well as a look at spiritualism in the mid-Victorian period.
