Heathcliff Lennox Investigates: A Cotswolds Country House murder mystery.

Book 11 in the Heathcliff Lennox series.

A dazzling ball in a rooftop ballroom in one of the most prestigious mansions in the country.
Dancing, music, champagne, ravishing ball gowns, priceless jewellery…and murder.
Jack Dutton died in the dark. Why? Who hated him enough to kill him? Why had he made a list of gemstones and their prices? What was he guilty of? Dutton had been a handsome war hero, but tragedy surrounded him, and his nature had always been unpredictable. When Lennox and Swift begin peeling away the layers of deceit, they uncover some vile secrets, secrets that have already led to Dutton’s murder, and it’s not long before there’s another.
Belvedere House hosts the highest of high society, and yet even among its glittering halls, evil creeps in to catch the unwary, and the unwitting.

Major Heathcliff Lennox – ex WW1 war pilot, 6feet 3inch, tousled dark blond hair, age around 30 – named after the hero of Wuthering Heights by his romantically minded mother – much to his great annoyance.

Murder at Little Minton

Miss Busby investigates: Murder at Little Minton – Out now

A picturesque Cotswolds village at Christmas 1922, a man found face down floating in the lake. He was known to take a risk, an insurance salesman; debonair, charming and sweet-talking.
His clients were all ladies of a certain age, but nothing was as it seemed; he was playing a game, he pushed his luck, he put a price on his head and somebody decided to collect.

Mr G R Travis – a poet and book binder – has lived and worked above a popular village bookshop for many years. His story is tragic, his murder even more so.

The police are convinced the book shop owner is the culprit; the elderly and erudite, Ezekiel Melnyk.

Adeline Fanshaw is less convinced, indeed she is outraged that the police could even consider such a thing of the venerable bookseller. She naturally turns to Miss Busby, persuading her to bring her sleuthing skills to unpick the truth of the matter. In doing so, Miss Busby uncovers another tragic mystery, one that has lain dormant for far too many years.


Book 12 in the Heathcliff Lennox series

Twelve Saints, who are not true saints at all. They are the great and the good, although none are entirely great, nor good – indeed one is a murderer.
Temple House near Bath is built upon an old Roman Temple, the house bequeathed many centuries before to a secret order of old aristocracy. The ‘Saints’ are not true saints, they are remnants; the last of their line, they have wealth, but no heirs.
The Order may invite any such relict to join them. They will come to live in Temple House, they will become a revered and venerable Saint, and when they die all their wealth must go into the saints coffers.
Each Christmas these coffers are opened and the Saints – after much debate and contemplation – will donate a proportion of their wealth to a good and deserving cause.
This fine philanthropic task has followed the same line for hundreds of years – until now. It is Christmas 1923 and a Saint is found dead, murdered, and the killer is from within Temple House itself. The Order of the Saints is shrouded in secrecy and this dreadful deed cannot be allowed to expose them. And so their keeper of the books – the Dead Reckoner – suggests they call in Major Heathcliff Lennox and ex-Inspector Jonathan Swift to uncover the killer.

Karen Menuhin Portrait

Karen Baugh Menuhin

NUMBER 1 best selling author with sales of over 1 million books

1920s, 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.

Now, some years later, I have reached number 1 in USA and sold over a million books. It’s been a huge surprise, and goes to show that it’s never too late to try something new.

I grew up in the military, often on RAF bases but preferring to be in the countryside when we could. I adore whodunnits, art and history of any description.

I have two amazing sons – Jonathan and Sam Baugh, and his wife, Wendy, and five grandchildren, Charlie, Joshua, Isabella-Rose, Scarlett and Hugo.

I’m married to Krov, my wonderful husband, who is a retired film maker and eldest son of the violinist, Lord Yehudi Menuhin. We live in the Cotswolds.
