Victorian England’s most celebrated lady detective returns with ten new brain-teasing adventures.
Several years after the release of her memoir, celebrated lady detective Miss Hester Lynton has been prevailed upon to release ten more of her most challenging cases for the delectation of the reading public.
While these stories will bring readers face to face with kidnappers, scheming fraudsters, corrupt doctors, forgers of artworks and terrible murderers, they can rest assured that Miss Lynton and fellow sleuth, Miss Jessop, will always uncover the truth. Amidst the dirt and deprivation of Victorian England, these intrepid investigators will stop at nothing to see justice done.
The Return of Hester Lynton is a collection of ten hugely enjoyable detective stories that will appeal to fans of Sherlock Holmes, Edgar Allen Poe and Bram Stoker – who even makes a cameo appearance in the book!
