Well, a thing happened. My original timeline for publishing Shadow in Scarlet (Heyward and Andersen, Consulting Detectives #2) sped up rather quickly and suddenly it was done a month ahead of schedule. So, ta-da, here it is.
Shadow in Scarlet
Did you think Holmes and Watson were the only pair of consulting detectives in London? Meet Heyward and Andersen, consulting detectives in a paranormal London you never imagined… a world of airships, mysteries, and monsters.
Elspeth Heyward has never met a mystery she didn’t want to solve or a risk she wasn’t willing to take. Always up for adventure, she is determined to be the best detective and monster hunter in London and outshine her avowed rival, Sherlock Holmes.
New to the detective world, Lars Andersen just wants to stay alive and out of trouble, even if he secretly enjoys their cases. But when your partner likes guns and danger, work can be hazardous. Thank heavens for a good glass of brandy and excellent pickled herring.
The Case: Hunt down a vampire stalking their client, the infamous thrall, Scarlett LeJeune. The investigation leads them across the city as they hunt their suspect, but can they find this obsessive swain before his love becomes lethal?
Set in an alternate, supernatural version of Victorian Britain, Shadow in Scarlet is the second intriguing story in the Heyward and Andersen, Consulting Detectives series.
And story #1, The Ghostly Tower, is available for free if you sign up for my newsletter.
Elspeth Heyward has never met a puzzle she didn’t want to solve, or an adventure she didn’t relish. Taking Sherlock Homes as her benchmark, she is determined to be the best detective and monster hunter in London.
Lars Andersen’s ambitions aren’t nearly as demanding. He just wants to stay alive, out of trouble, and out of jail. But when your partner likes guns and dynamite, that could be a challenge. Can he survive his new employment?
The Case: Discover if a stone tower on their client’s estate is haunted. It should be straightforward, but ghosts aren’t all they find. When they dig up a body, they also unearth a murder and a tangle of secrets. Secrets they’d better unravel quickly before someone else dies.
Set in an alternate, supernatural version of Victorian Britain, The Ghostly Tower is the first riveting story in the Heyward and Andersen, Consulting Detectives series.
Even if they seem a bit scary, your novels are interesting. Kudos! Congrats!
