It all begins with a murder. James Meredith is a very rich man, but he is found guilty of shooting his fiance’s suitor in a crime of passion. Meredith’s lawyer, Jack Glover, suspects that the fiancé is the guilty one, and indeed, Jean Briggerland—Meredith’s first cousin and bride-to-be—is a true heartless beauty. Jean is after Meredith’s fortune, but Glover is one step ahead of her, and finds a new bride for Meredith. Then Meredith, too, is murdered. Now the fortune which Jean thought to inherit belongs to a young newspaper artist named Lydia Beale. Jean and her father are practiced in the art of murder, however, and they are soon making plans for the early death of Lydia. Only the old man named Jaggs, hired by Glover to protect her, stands between her and the beautiful angel of death.





Kate Westhanger has been raised by her uncle, the Colonel, into a life of crime. For him, there is always the next job, the big payoff, and retirement. Crime is a way of life. For Kate, crimes are a puzzle that need to be solved, with each detail offering its own particular challenge. For Inspector Michael Pretherston, Kate herself is a bit of a puzzle. There is no question but that she’s good at what she does. Her latest caper involves a variety of disguises that bring her in contact with two of London’s top financiers. Pretherston has no idea what Kate’s up to, but he seems to keep running into her, first as personal secretary to Lord Flanborough, and later as a Polish princess. Whatever Kate has planned, it will definitely be the scheme of the century. If only he can figure it out before it’s too late.

Editorial Reviews

"The Angel of Terror is an almost formulaic crime thriller, but the brilliant characterization and unusual twists and turns make it a gripping read."-Loyal Books"There is a very good reason to read The Angel of Terror: the angel herself. I don't think I have yet encountered such a strong female villain...intelligent, capable, implacable, and daring."-Past Offences"Quite a few twists and turns in this book ... it holds your attention."-David Lyons, Many Books
