Dying in the Wool
"Well-plotted and atmospheric... Kate Shackleton joins Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs." --Literary Review

Kate Shackleton has always loved solving puzzles. So who better to get to the bottom of Joshua's mysterious disappearance? But as Kate taps into the lives of the Bridgestead dwellers, she opens cracks that some would kill to keep closed...
