Dream Kingdom by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles

Book Description

Edwardian England is a country at the peak of its power; a kingdom of peace, prosperity and progress. As Jessie and Violet enjoy their coming-out in the glittering Season of 1908, their thoughts are of pleasure, dancing and falling in love. For the Morlands things seem set fair: new business ventures expand their influence and wealth; there are weddings, babies in the nursery, careers for the boys now reaching manhood. It is an exciting age, with new technologies - motor cars, telephones, radio, aeroplanes - extending man's control over the natural world. But under the appearance of permanence, a different reality is stirring. Socialism, the suffrage movement, the constitutional crisis, all call forth ever more dissent and anger. Increasingly violent protests and strikes disturb the peace; war with Germany looms ever closer. With the King's death, it begins to seem that the safe Edwardian world was only a dream, from which the wakening will be hard indeed.

Old Bones by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles Old Bones, Hardback (October 2016)

A couple discover human remains buried in the garden of their new house: could this be the resting place of 14-year-old Amanda Knight, who disappeared from the same garden two decades before? With a murder twenty years in the past, this is the coldest of cold cases. Most of the suspects are now dead too, and all passion is long spent. Or is it?

One Under by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles One Under, Hardback (August 2016)

A middle-aged man jumps under a tube train, and a teenage girl is killed in a hit-and-run, puzzlingly far from her home: two unrelated incidents which occupy DCI Bill Slider and his team during a slack period. But links to a cold case create doubts as to whether they are indeed unrelated.
