Thriller set around the mouth of the Saint Lawrence river – QUEBEC
The Indelible Stain
This is the second book in the Esme Quentin genealogy mystery series
Esme Quentin’s arrival in north Devon is marred by the gruesome discovery of a fatally injured woman at the foot of Warren Cliff.
Troubled by the woman’s final words and curious about the photograph clutched in her hand, Esme follows a trail which leads back to the brutal penal history of 19th century England, and to the mystery of a Devon convict girl transported to Australia for her crime.
Soon it becomes clear that a legacy of hatred festering for generations in the ‘land beyond the seas’ now threatens to spill over on to Devon soil with devastating consequences.
