The Missing Diamond Murder

By Diane Janes

In the third book of the Black and Dod mystery series, Fran Black investigates a death and receives an unexpected proposal …

It’s 1930 and Frances Black is worried. Her divorce proceedings are underway, and her solicitor has learnt of a spiteful letter sent to court, claiming there’s more to her friendship with Tom Dod than meets the eye.

Fran takes Tom’s advice to get away, travelling down to Devon to help the Edgerton family solve a perplexing mystery. Arriving at their residence, Sunnyside House, Fran learns that Eddie Edgerton’d grandfather Frederick died in mysterious circumstances when his wheelchair went off a cliff.

But was it really an accident? And what has happened to Frederick’s precious diamond – missing at the time of his death?

As Fran investigates, she uncovers family scandal, deception and revenge. Meanwhile, at least one member of the Edgerton family has been paying Fran very close attention indeed …

The Missing Diamond Murder is a delightful example of English cosy crime, in the mold of Agatha Christie, Dorothy L Sayers, and Patricia Wentworth. It will doubtless appeal to fans of those authors, and to readers who enjoy a ‘whodunnit’ in the classic style.
