A great read for crime-fiction fans. This mystery kept me hooked from beginning to end. With the well-researched details about the suffrage movement in Dundee, Scotland, I felt as if I was there. Suffragettes are dying and, with the police doing little to find out why, Kirsty and her fellow suffragettes set out to find the killer themselves. A thoroughly enjoyable read. I look forward to reading more in this series.

Dundee, Scotland, 1908

Suffragettes are dying. The police aren't interested, taking the attitude ‘good riddance to bad rubbish'.

Three suffragettes band together to find the truth.

Kirsty, a naive young girl unable to escape her controlling family and the secret of her past, lives a sheltered life with her parents in their Broughty Ferry mansion. When she becomes interested in the suffrage cause, she is aware her father will disapprove and does not know if she will have the courage to defy him. Despite this, she becomes increasingly involved with Dundee suffragettes.

Ethel, is a working-class mill girl fleeing from her abusive home and vicious father who has sworn to kill her rather than allow her to be a suffragette.

Martha is a seasoned suffragette seeking justice for her friends.

Kirsty and Ethel come under the wing of Martha, who protects them and encourages their aspirations. But when suffragettes are found murdered with ‘Votes for Women' sashes wound around their necks, they band together to hunt the killer
Will Kirsty and Ethel forge a new destiny for themselves?

Will Martha unmask the killer? And will she survive?

A coming of age story with murder and mystery at its heart.

Behind the book

While writing the Kirsty Campbell series I became fascinated with Kirsty's background. Plus, my research into the origins of the first women's police services generated a keen interest in suffragettes due to the fact that the first women's police services were set up by the suffragette societies and many policewomen had been suffragettes.

These joint interests led to the birth of the first novel in what will be my Suffragette Mystery series.
