TWO DETECTIVE STORIES FOR THE PRICE OF ONE!
Rhoda and Edward Dendron are lovers of art, antiques and the wild beauty of the North Country often painted by Turner.
Yet indulging themselves is a rare treat.
In bidding for a Georgian writing desk by the famous Gillows of Lancaster, Rhoda
thought she had hit the jackpot.
But Britain's greatest Romantic artist has kept a great secret from us all. A secret lost to posterity and unsuspected by the professionals of the art world.
Can the Dendrons solve this mystery?
Edward and Rhoda don't suspect that beauty to die for is also worth killing for.
On the cusp of making art history, they find themselves embroiled in foul play, grand larceny and under investigation by Cumbria Constabulary.
Historical sleuthing has landed them in the midst of the criminal kind.

John Whittaker grew up in a small village in the Pennine hills of East Lancashire.
His career led him to live in Durham, Oxford and Lancaster with short spells in Canada. It hardly, he thinks, prepared him to write fiction.
These years were spent with his late wife and their two sons.
With retirement close to the English Lake District more time was released for walking hills and mountains often with friends and family.
Now married to a musician with two sons, there are four grandchildren to watch growing up.
