The Diabolical Bones : A gripping gothic mystery set in Victorian Yorkshire Hardback

Part of the The Bronte Mysteries series

Hardback

Description

It's Christmas 1845 and Haworth is in the grip of a freezing winter.

Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte are rather losing interest in detecting until they hear of a shocking discovery: the bones of a child have been found interred within the walls of a local house, Top Withens Hall, home to the scandalous and brutish Bradshaw family.

When the sisters set off to find out more, they are confronted with an increasingly complex and sinister case, which leads them into the dark world of orphanages, and onto the trail of other lost, and likely murdered children.

After another local boy goes missing, Charlotte, Emily and Anne vow to find him before it's too late.

But in order to do so, they must face their most despicable and wicked adversary yet - one that would not hesitate to cause them the gravest of harm . . . Praise for Bella Ellis and the series:'Bronte aficionados are sure to enjoy the accurate characterization and context, the twists turns and Gothic touches of the plot, and the strong feminist streak that manifests itself throughout, but most triumphantly at the end.

Happily, more Bronte mysteries are to be expected.' The Times Literary Supplement'A splendid adventure' Guardian'A delight' The Wall Street Journal'Brilliantly entertaining and original' CL Taylor'Insightful, moving and inspiring . . . an absolute treat from start to finish' Jane Casey'Elegant, witty and compulsively readable - I think the Bronte sisters would have been delighted' Rosie Walsh
