Two English mysteries set at Claresby Manor – Is the death of a famous artist linked to the discovery of an ancient Egyptian ring? And why do mysterious disappearances follow the appointment of a beautiful new vicar? More
"The Claresby Mystery" – Laura Latimer has revived the ancient tradition of Claresby Fair and invited famous artists Sebastian Fullmarks and Floyd Bailey to attend. However, the discovery that one of the guests is dead in their bed and strange hieroglyphs have been scrawled on the bedroom wall threatens to disrupt events. Is the explanation to be found in the suitcase which has remained unopened since Thomas Mortimer, Laura’s ancestor and Lord of Claresby Manor, returned from Egypt in the 1890s? "The Black Widow of Claresby" – A new vicar has been appointed in Claresby. Veronica Dahl is dark, voluptuous and beautiful; but strange rumours have followed her from her previous parish. What was the real reason for her younger husband’s mysterious death? Who is the odd, reclusive man who lives in a caravan but visits the vicarage at night? And why do parishioners start to disappear? Two mysteries set at Claresby Manor; these follow on chronologically from “Three Mysteries”, but each stands alone as a complete story. Each story is about 8000 words long.
