MURDER, Now and Then ~ Mystery Inspired by History Series


In May 2019 Joanna Thomas, a less than conventional farmer’s wife, is accused of murdering her husband, but with no motive or murder weapon discovered, the likelihood of a speedy conviction is diminishing fast.

Frustrated that they are unable to solve this crime, DS Tony Brown and DC Cathy Peterson uncover a series of most strange coincidences, all compelling them towards an unsolved murder  of a Jersey lass, Lucille Vardon, back in 1919. From no obvious suspects they now have several seemingly unlikely candidates, none with totally believable alibis.

Whist puzzling over the complexity of this strange case they take a trip to Jersey, but losing their lead they return, just as the case turns decidedly sinister.

Could an unsolved murder in Bedfordshire back in 1919 really have a bearing on the murder of Bob Thomas? Is Lucille still haunting descendants of her case 100 years on, until the truth is uncovered?
