The Monks Hood Murders Book 5 in the Heathcliff Lennox series

A scoundrel lies dying, he makes his confession; his sins were legion, his deeds despicable, and he wants to atone for his scandalous life. He bequeaths an invaluable gift to Monks Hood Abbey, an ancient Monastery set in a lonely corner of the Yorkshire moors. But sin throws a long shadow and corruption crawls in its shade. Strangers come forward and lay claim to the monks' inheritance. Chaos simmers and then boils over, shattering the tranquility of the Abbey.

The Abbot calls on Major Heathcliff Lennox and ex-Chief Inspector Swift to ask for their help. They must go to Yorkshire to unravel the mayhem – but then there's mystery, and murder, and another adventure begins.

Major Heathcliff Lennox, ex-WW1 war pilot, six feet 3 inches, unruly dark blond hair, age around 30 - named after the hero of Wuthering Heights by his romantically minded mother - much to his great annoyance. The Monks Hood Murders is the fifth book in the Lennox series.

A little about me;

1920’s, Cozy crime, Traditional Detectives, Downton Abbey – I love them!

Along with my family, my dog and my cat.

At 60 I decided to write, I don’t know why but suddenly the stories came pouring out, along with the characters. Eccentric Uncles, stalwart butlers, idiosyncratic servants, machinating Countesses, and the hapless Major Heathcliff Lennox.

A whole world built itself upon the page and I just followed along….

An itinerate traveller all my life. I grew up in the military, often on RAF bases but preferring to be in the countryside when we could.

I have 2 amazing sons – Jonathan and Sam Baugh, and 5 grandchildren, Charlie, Joshua, Isabella-Rose, Scarlett and Hugo.

I am living and writing in the Cotswolds with my dear husband Krov, who inspires and helps me in all my efforts. Krov is a professional writer, an award-winning documentary filmmaker, professional diver, pilot, ex US special forces soldier, and the eldest son of violinist, Yehudi Menuhin.
