Death at Deepwater Point

RRP: $26.95

It’s 1887, Dr Hamish Hart along with his friend, Dr Rita Cartwright, enjoy a weekend stay at the opulent new hotel at Deepwater Point…

There is excitement for the upcoming aeronautical exhibition by French beauty Celestine DuPont which is unexpectantly disrupted by the mysterious murder of a young nurse also staying at the hotel…

The talk is filled with conspiracy by the guests and staff at the hotel… Could the murder be linked to Glenda Hembrow who had a child in secret prior to her marriage, or perhaps the Captain Murdo Black, one full of stories worthy of a sea captain? Is it linked to Celestine DuPont whose father had disappeared after a fateful ballooning accident, or even Colonel Otis Winter, recently retired from the German Imperial Army?

Hamish believes the answer lies in a deeper understanding of the deceased and who she was before her demise.

The revelations become simpler than Hamish first imagined when he ponders not who she was, but rather what she saw before her death…

“A fantastic new episode for the brilliant Dr Hamish and written by an amazing author of great mystery and character creation in the entire series… Exceptional..!” Sandra, Indie Book reviewer
