Discover the first three cases in the Dr Josiah Bartlett Mystery series

Deadly Crossroads

19th century America and the peace of Concord, Massachusetts is about to come to an end.

Doctor Josiah Bartlett has grown fat tending to the mundane needs of the people in Concord, Massachusetts. When Mary Chase is fished out of the river, her tragic death is believed to be suicide. But when Doctor Josiah Bartlett examines the girl, he finds her head has been caved in.

The local sheriff dismisses the case, leading Bartlett to take it on himself and it’s not long before a very different picture of Mary begins to emerge. As he starts to get closer to knowing the real Mary, another brutal killing rocks the town. Is it linked to Mary’s death or is it just a terrifying coincidence?

Deadly Rendezvous

They say lightning never strikes the same place twice…

The respectable residents of the sleepy town of Concord, Massachusetts are rocked by a second murder within the Chase family. Three years after the drowning of wild child Mary, the Chase matriarch – Sarah – is discovered with her throat slit and the two children missing.

Despite solving Mary’s murder, the good Doctor Josiah Bartlett is warned by the town sheriff not to stick his nose into lawmen’s work. Nevertheless, Bartlett is determined to solve the gruesome murder and – with the help of his daughter Hannah – they set out to find the missing children and trap a dangerously unstable killer.

How far are they willing to go to bring the killer to justice?

Deadly Assumptions

Bad things always come in threes…

There’s no peace to be had by the residents of Concord, Massachusetts, especially if you’re a member of the Chase family. Five years after the events of Deadly Rendezvous, the youngest Chase daughter – Edie – is found poisoned in a hotel room on a rare visit home.

Doctor Josiah Bartlett’s suspicions are aroused by Edie’s murder, especially as to why she had returned to Concord and why she had sought him out specifically. Bartlett is pulled out of retirement to solve another case of the family tragedy that seems to have no end…
