‘A sparkling and witty crime debut with a female protagonist to challenge Miss Marple’ LIN ANDERSON, Award winning Scottish crime author

A Death in the Loch – the sixth edition of the gripping and twisty Euphemia Martins Mysteries!


During a Christmas party, Euphemia Martins – together with Bertram Stapleford and manservant Rory McLeod – is tasked by the slippery government agent Fitzroy with doing a little snooping at the Staplefords’ Highland Lodge.

When Euphemia discovers the purposes of the charade for which she has been demoted back to a maid, she is furious. There are plans afoot – plans which involve signing the Official Secrets Act …

Meanwhile, Rory still isn’t speaking to her and Bertram is more interested in growing his awful new beard. The arrival at the Lodge of four mysterious ‘Mr Smiths’ – and some outrageous proposals for Scotland’s future – raises tensions to boiling point, and that’s not even mentioning the German spy lurking in the woods, or the accident with some hot soup …

But when the inevitable dead body turns up, they must all work together or find themselves jailed for murder.
