Strange Images of Death by Barbara Cleverly

About Strange Images of Death (from the publisher): Provence, 1926. Scotland Yard detective Joe Sandilands plans to drop his niece at an ancient château on his way down to the Riviera for a much needed holiday.

A troubling crime committed at the château just before their arrival leaves a clear message that more violence is to come. To allay panic, Joe agrees to stay on and root out the guilty person. But, despite Joe's vigilance, a child goes missing and an artist's beautiful young model is murdered in circumstances eerily recreating a six hundred-year-old crime of passion.

Helped and hindered by a rising star of the French Police Judiciaire, Joe must delve into a horror story from the castle's past before he can tear the mask from the diseased soul responsible for these contemporary crimes.

About the author: Born in the north of England and a graduate of Durham University, this former teacher now lives in Cambridge. Her Joe Sandilands series, set against the background of the Indian Empire, was inspired by the contents of a battered old tin trunk that she found in her attic.
