When a woman turns up drowned on the grounds of a royal estate, Sergeant Keen Dunliffe of Leeds, West Yorkshire, is hoping it’s just a case of a drunken skinny-dipping accident. But when the woman turns out to be a historian, whose specialty is eighteenth-century English royalty and politics and who was attending a conference at a local university, it’s too much of a public relations nightmare to take lightly.

The mystery deepens when two secretive men from the Met show up and ask Keen to befriend a colleague of the dead woman, Professor Jillie Waltham, in the hopes that she can shed some light on the victim’s life and work. With such high ranking government officials interested in the case but unable to tell him why, Dunliffe’s rebellious nature might get him into more trouble than ever before his investigation is finished.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Wood keeps the reader guessing as the mix of sexual shenanigans, forgeries, family secrets and police corruption swirls and eddies…May the likable Dunliffe and the plucky Waltham…soon return for more crime-solving adventure.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Listeners have much to enjoy in this planned series. It’s the reading as much as the writing that delights. Ralph Cosham offers a superb range of accents and characterizations…a pleasure with the promise of more.”


  • “Cosham’s thoughtful, crisp reading highlights both Keen’s frustration and passion as the fervor of his investigation is hampered by red tape. The narrator aptly switches from the cadence of Jillie’s American accent to the lilt of Keen’s Yorkshire dialect…Keen and Jillie uncover a bizarre web of lies, mystery, and murder in this riveting tale.”


  • “Actor Cosham gives a superb presentation of this British thriller, differentiating accents from Yorkshire, London, and America, and among males and females, adults and children, with authoritative ease.”
