Murder on the Island
Belinda and Hazel find themselves on the island of
Guernsey where they are invited by Sir Mark’s
mother, Melba, Lady Sallinger. Other house guests
include her parents, a handsome interior designer, a
slovenly bookseller, a Jesuit priest, and Catherine, a
mysterious woman writer. Soon after, the residents of the
old Tudor mansion are thrown into confusion with the
discovery of human remains buried in the garden.
The priest tells of the Guernsey Martyrs, burned alive in 1556 for theft, and he believes a silver cup from that theft, is hidden in the house. One murder and a second mysterious death lead to revelations of past crimes that resonate to the present day and result in an exciting resolution tinged by the island’s history of Nazi occupation.
‘Belinda Lawrence is a woman who is highly charged when it comes to solving a mystery. She lets nothing stand in her way right down to entering other people’s home without invitation. I like her independent nature, her daring maneuvers, her determination. Mr. Kavanagh did a great job choosing characters that supported and/or worked against Belinda. A good read filled with suspense and mystery.’ – ALTERNATIVE READ
‘Belinda is the type of heroine that will be beloved and leave readers wondering what’s happening to her next.
I know I will be.’ – AMAZON. Yvonne Reviews.
‘Brian Kavanagh has an amusing turn of phrase and his interpretation of the wonderful English mystery series of yesteryear makes for delightful entertainment.’ – AMAZON. Angela S..
