Angel in Autumn

By Anthea Cohen

Agnes knew a long-kept secret about her next-door neighbours which made them of vital interest to her. There was Bill Turner, a novelist, the lovely, vulnerable Stella, her small son, Bruce, a nanny, and a lanky, guitar-playing youth, Rick. And on the fringes of this strange ménage, the sinister, manipulative Hebe.

But it wasn’t until little Bruce disappeared (or did he?) that Agnes, an ex-nurse in comfortable retirement, became involved both practically and emotionally in a complicated case of origin and descent – and summary justice.

Agnes’s disquieting exultation in secret knowledge and its consequent power, now recorded in over twelve ‘Nurse Carmichael’ novels, makes her a unique character in present-day crime fiction.

Anthea Cohen trained as a State Registered Nurse at the Leicester Royal Infirmary and has worked as a hospital Sister for many years and as a private nurse. She has written on medicine and hospital life, has been a columnist for Nursing Mirror and has contributed regularly to World Medicine. Since 1982 she has published thirteen Agnes Carmichael novels, innumerable short stories, and popular books for teenagers in America.
