The Hero from ‘Wicked Autumn’ is Back!

The Hero from ‘Wicked Autumn’ is Back!
Author G.M. Malliet Moves Forward in A Fatal Winter

TomAFatalWinterAn interesting hero entered the literary world when he starred in a truly fantastic book called, Wicked Autumn. Thankfully, this very handsome Anglican Priest who has a background as a former spy is back, and this new mystery, if possible, is even better than the first.

We speak of Max Tudor, who is attempting to solve the murders of an upper-crust family living in a castle located in Max’s home turf of Nether Monkslip. His adventure begins on a train, where Max shares a compartment with Lady Baynard of Chedrow Castle.
Disliking his journey more and more, this particular Lady is beyond annoying and Max can hardly wait to get to his destination and leave her far behind, which is definitely not a ‘priestly’ attitude.

Irony at its finest, Max is soon asked to come to Chedrow Castle by the local detective inspector Cotton; the inspector wishes to utilize Max’s MI-5 experience to help him investigate the odd death of Lord Footrustle, the owner of the castle and head of the family. It is the happy holiday season; Christmas is in the air and the fancy home is overrun by family suspects who are all salivating over the announcement of the Will; each one wants nothing more than to be named the new owner of the castle and be blessed with the title of Lord.

Soon after Max’s arrival a new body crops up, and that is Lady Baynard, the dead Lord’s sister and Max’s annoying travel companion. Very interested as to who will profit from the deaths of both the brother and sister, Max must delve into the secrets of many. Included among the cheery family members are Lord Footrustle’s daughter, Jocasta, and his former wife, Gwynyth. Both are more than a little strange, and Max doesn’t give much thought to either of them, seeing as that they’re definitely not smart enough to carry out a murder.

The Lord’s adopted granddaughter, Lamorna, seems to be another story, and soon becomes suspect number one in Max’s mind. Whether he’s right or wrong will be a challenge to discover, but one thing is for sure…Max is definitely about to meet his intellectual match. Enjoy this one, readers! It is fantastic!

Until Next Time, Everybody,
Amy
