Description

Northamptonshire, 1810: As a new canal network snakes across the landscape, a vicious mob stakes its claim to the county. Every local constable is out on the hunt for the ruthless Panther Gang. When an elderly man is robbed and murdered in sleepy Middleton, the beleaguered magistrates send for help from London's Bow Street Police Office.

Detective Stephen Lavender and Constable Ned Woods soon discover there's more to William Sculthorpe's demise than meets the eye. Mystery surrounds the old man and his family, and the stench of revenge hangs heavy in the air. Are the Panther Gang really responsible or is something more sinister afoot? As Lavender delves further into long-hidden secrets, Woods has demons of his own to contend with: ghosts from his past that stalk him through the investigation.

Uncovering decades of simmering hatred and deceit, Lavender and Woods must use all their wit and cunning to solve this evil crime.

Based in historical fact

I've read or listened to all of this series and enjoyed each one. Carefully plotted and painstakingly accurate in period detail, this is a wonderful example of first class historical fiction with great murder mystery plot.

This series just keeps getting better!

Where does The Sculthorpe Murder rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Lots of twists and turns with great characters. I've read all three available books and the series just keeps getting better. Looking forward to the next book.

Love the Lavender series!

So interesting and exciting! I loved all the subplots and the way the puzzle fell into place with all of them at the end. I can't wait for the next one to come out as an audiobook!

Superb narration

From Karen Charlton's first book, The Heiress of Linn Hagh, I've become a big fan. Her stories are actually drawn from real historical events. The writing transports me to the book's time period, 1810. Additionally, the narration was superb! I look forward to the next book in the Detective Lavender series.

Interesting history and great fiction.

This is a good mystery within a mystery with lots of twists and turns of plot. I hope there is more to come from this author.

I'm A Fan!

Loved this one the most so far. Can't wait to read the next one. Very smart and very funny - and I'm learning that there's a lot more to Regency England than Jane Austen would have you believe!
