About Anna Lord

Anna Lord has long been fascinated by myth and metaphor, and the way they inform human thought. With an English and Philosophy degree focused on metaphysical poets and logical thinking there was only one creative avenue for her to follow: two rational detectives battling to make sense of a superstitious gas-lit world.

Anna's Ukrainian background, coupled with a love for whodunnits, Victorian settings, and Gothic characters, inspires her literary world and makes the books a joy to write.

The result is her new series: Watson and the Countess.

Review by: Helen Druett on Dec. 30, 2015 :
The Curse Of Christmas

Well…what can I say? I started at the wrong end.

At any rate, I read The Curse Of Christmas in a day, and did not want to stop when I really needed to go to bed. Consequently, I had to re-read the last few pages before 'lights out'.

A real page turner, which had me guessing to the end.

Research into the era is excellent, even having me check words I did not have any idea the meaning of.

I really felt I was reading a story by Arthur Conan Doyle, which I know is high praise, but deservedly so.

I have now located all the other books in the series to date and am working my way through them.

The Baskerville Curse was the next one to become a victim to my voracious appetite.
