Old Sins Never Die

Author(s): Daniella Bernett

Location(s): Scotland, London, The Lake District

Genre(s): Mystery, Suspense

Era(s): Contemporary

Never look back…Treason is deadly

While in the Lake District, journalist Emmeline Kirby and
jewel thief/insurance investigator Gregory Longdon
overhear a man attempting to hire international assassin
Hugh Carstairs, a MI5 agent who went rogue. They race
back to London to warn Philip Acheson of the Foreign
Office and Superintendent Oliver Burnell. But it’s a devil
of problem to prevent a vicious killing, if the target is a
mystery.

More trouble brews as Emmeline pursues a story about
shipping magnate Noel Rallis, who is on trial for murder. Rallis is desperate to keep the negative publicity from exposing his illicit schemes, especially something sinister called Poseidon. Lord Desmond Starrett, whose dark past made him easy prey for blackmail, is getting cold feet about their dubious partnership. Hovering in the shadows of this ugly secret world is a Russian mole buried inside MI5. Scorned prima ballerina Anastasia Tarasova makes the fatal mistake of threatening to reveal all she knows. The hunt for the answers takes Emmeline and Gregory up to Scotland, where they learn that the truth has lethal
consequences.
