Summary

A Pawnshop Robbery: It's no rest for the wicked as Kate Shackleton picks up her second professional sleuthing case. But exposing the culprit of a pawnshop robbery turns sinister when her investigation takes her to Harrogate - and murder is only one step behind....

A Fatal Stabbing: A night at the theatre should be just what the doctor ordered - until Kate stumbles across a body in the doorway. The knife sticking out of its chest definitely suggests a killer in the theatre's midst.

So when a ransom note demands £1,000 for the safe return of the play's leading lady, the refined streets of Harrogate play host to Kate's skills in piecing together clues - and luring criminals out of their lairs....

another well told story.

Frances Brody writes very enjoyable books the plot is just different enough to keep one reading on. Kate Shackleton is made interesting but with many layers....FBs interpretation of the roles of both women and men in the post war era and late 1920s is realistic and it blends well with her stories. The added bonus is her knowledge of Yorkshire and the town's and cities within at that period in time..

A good story

A good story with unexpected but plausible twists. More for a female audience in style.

A Good story

I enjoyed this book and listened to the whole thing in a couple of days. There were a lot of characters but it was not difficult to follow the story. The murderer was not obvious and there were a lot of false leads. I will probably listen to it again at some point. The narration was excellent and the book was very easy to listen to.

the narrator doesn't really fit with character

interesting story but has lost local context due to change in narrator. now kate Shackleton sounds upper class?
