It is October 1923. What looks like a routine report, on the heavy rains battering Melbourne, becomes another case of murder for The Argus’s celebrated crime reporter, Reggie da Costa, devotee of fashionable suits and flamboyant automobiles. A flooded basement hides a ghastly secret: the decomposing remains of Cornelius Stout, a wealthy widower, who has been missing for over two years. With an unlikely partner in straitlaced Dotty Wright, Reggie pursues a cold-blooded, manipulative killer with deadly intentions.
Deadly Intent is the second in the Reggie da Costa Mysteries.
A Note From the Publisher
Also Available as an Ebook
“In this delightful historical crime novel, Australian author Laraine Stephens delivers an enthralling page turner in Deadly Intent. Readers will enjoy being transported back in time with an intriguing set of characters, led by Reggie, and a great setting to contrast and go hand in hand with the specter of a fiendish killer on the loose.”
— R. Barri Flowers, award winning criminologist and author
"...This is a charming and wonderfully atmospheric novel, full of riddles and flirting and endearing characters; but prepare yourself for a good dose of gritty, early-twentieth-century crime, too. Grab a cuppa, sit in a comfy armchair, put your feet up, and get ready to drift into another time and place.”
— Kerry Peresta, author of the Olivia Callahan Suspense series.
