The Path of the Wicked, Hardback


Private investigator Liberty Lane's latest case takes her to rural Gloucestershire to uncover the truth of a brutal murder.

July, 1840. Did young Jack Picton, a known rebel and political agitator, kill governess Mary Marsh?

Liberty Lane has left London for Cheltenham to find out, sharing the magistrate's doubts.

He is, however, hiding something ...but what? As Liberty is about to discover, behind Cheltenham's genteel facade lies a hotbed of vice.

It is a place where the poor are driven to desperate lengths to escape the horror of the workhouse. A place which is harbouring a ruthless killer. Can Liberty uncover the truth in time?
