Death At Dartmoorby Robin Paige
Synopses & Reviews
“A sentence to Dartmoor Prison is a sentence to a living hell…” Lord Charles Sheridan and his American wife, Kate, have heard some truly awful things about Britains most notorious prison. But Dartmoor and its mist-shrouded environs hold special appeal for both Sheridans. Kate hopes to find inspiration for her new Gothic novel, while Charles plans to implement a fingerprinting program at the prison—and arrange a meeting with one of its most infamous inmates, Samuel Spencer. Hes convinced that Spencer—a Scotsman who admitted to killing his wife—is, in fact, innocent. Whats more, he believes he has the evidence to prove it. But Spencer continues to maintain his own guilt—and, as if to confirm it, he soon stages a daring prison escape. Lord Charles and his acquaintance Arthur Conan Doyle are most perplexed by this odd turn of events. And when a body turns up on the moor, its up to the two men—and the clever Kate—to discover if the missing convict is connected to this murderous new case…
At Britain's most notorious prison, Lord Charles Sheridan, his clever American wife Kate, and his acquaintance Arthur Conan Doyle, must determine why one of its most infamous inmates confessed to a crime he clearly didn't commit.
Lord Charles Sheriden is convinced that an inmate at Dartmoor Prison, Samuel Spencer, who confessed to killing his wife, is innocent. Although Spencer maintains his guilt, Lord Charles, his wife Kate, and acquaintance Arthur Conan Doyle delve into the mystery.
