Summary, etc.: "London, 1930. A headless corpse; an apparent suicide in a locked room; a man burned alive during an illusionist's show in front of thousands of people. Scotland Yard is baffled by the sequence of ghastly murders unfolding across the city and at the centre of it all is mysterious heiress Rachel Savernake. Daughter of a grand judge, Rachel is as glamorous as she is elusive. Jacob Flint, a tenacious young journalist eager to cover the gruesome crimes, is drawn into Rachel's glittering world of wealth and power. But as the body count continues to rise, Jacob is convinced Rachel is harbouring a dark secret and he soon becomes part of a dangerous game that could leave him dancing at the end of the hangman's rope if he pursues the truth--

Summary

Gallows Court


"Superb--a pitch-perfect blend of Golden Age charm and sinister modern suspense, with a main character to die for. This is the book Edwards was born to write."--Lee Child, #1 New York Timesbestselling author The first Golden Age-style mystery in the Rachel Savernake series... How close can one person get to a cruel justice system before falling victim to it? London, 1930 Sooty, sulphurous, and malign: no woman should be out on a night like this. A spate of violent deaths--the details too foul to print--has horrified the capital and the smog-bound streets are deserted. But Rachel Savernake--the enigmatic daughter of a notorious hanging judge--is no ordinary woman. To Scotland Yard's embarrassment, she solved the Chorus Girl Murder, and now she's on the trail of another killer. Jacob Flint, a young newspaperman temporarily manning The Clarion's crime desk, is looking for the scoop that will make his name. He's certain there is more to the Miss Savernake's amateur sleuthing than meets the eye. He's not the only one. Flint's pursuit of Rachel Savernake will draw him ever-deeper into a labyrinth of deception and corruption. Murder-by-murder, he'll be swept ever-closer to its dark heart--and to the gallows themselves. Dark, atmospheric, and hearkening back to the Golden Age mysteries, Gallows Courtis: Perfect for fans of Sherry Thomas and Sophie Hannah For readers who enjoy British crime mysteries and historical fiction
