More puzzling apparitions mystify Mina Scarletti in her next investigation! Perfect for fans of Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie and Antonia Hodgson…
Someone from Mina’s past has returned to plague her…
Mina Scarletti is helping prepare for her brother Edward’s imminent wedding when she finds out Mr Beckler – a man who previously courted her under false pretences – is once more on the scene.
Mr Beckler claims to be able to capture spirits when taking photographs, and with her brother Richard now working for him, Mina is curious to see his pictures for herself.
She is shocked when the ghost of her father does indeed seem to appear in a photo taken of her family, yet certain it must be a fraud.
Mina soon realises that Beckler is targeting the families of the deceased whose spirits appear in his photographs, many of whom have died in mysterious circumstances.
And before long, Beckler’s claims attract her worst enemy back to Brighton…
Is Mr Beckler genuine in his claims to be able to photograph the dead? What connects the families he is targeting?
And is he determined once again to try and ruin Mina’s reputation…?
The Cyanide Ghost is the sixth cosy mystery in Linda Stratmann’s intriguing historical series, the Mina Scarletti investigations, a traditional British detective series with a feisty woman sleuth set in Victorian Brighton.
