Blackstone Fell

Martin Edwards

England, 1930. Journalist Nell Fagan is on the trail of a bizarre mystery: in 1606, a man vanished from a locked gatehouse in Blackstone Fell, a remote Yorkshire village. Three hundred years later, it happened again. Days after confiding in sleuth Rachel Savernake, Nell herself disappears.

In search for answers, and determined to bring an end to the disappearances, Rachel travels to the lonely Yorkshire village, with its eerie moor and sinister tower. But Rachel must be careful – with all of these people going missing, there’s every chance she will be taken too…

“Martin Edwards celebrates and satirises the genre with wit and affection... He leaves you wanting more.”
The Times
“Perfect for those who love a locked-room mystery... with a wonderful golden age of crime feel.”
Belfast Telegraph
“Martin Edwards holds his own with the best of classic crime.”
Daily Mail
