“The Assassins’ Village” by author, Faith Mortimer introduces, Diana Rivers, writer, sometime actor and amateur sleuth. 

NB. Although the Diana Rivers mystery suspense murder novels are a 'series', they can be read in any order.

When an expatriate theatrical group gather to discuss their next play there will be murder. A blackmailer stalks their picturesque Cypriot village. The group is riven with jealousies, rivalry, sexual tension and illicit affairs.

Unbeknown to each other they all attempt to find solutions to their problems. Some believe it lies in murder. Can they find the blackmailer? And can they find that all important ‘little black book’ – the chronicle of their misdeeds.

A body is discovered and Diana turns detective to draw up a suspects list. After the police get involved one of the suspects is found hanged – is this another murder or suicide? Was he indeed hanged? A visit to a villager’s home uncovers an ancient assassin’s device. Could this be the murder weapon? Is it possible that an assassin lives at the heart of this formerly peaceful and idyllic mountain village?

Love, hate, murder and high drama all feature in this classic historical detective story. With a long list of suspects, some dramatic twists and the odd red herring, the reader is left guessing until the final curtain. (Approx 93,000 words).

This is the first in the Diana Rivers series; Children of the Plantation and The Surgeon’s Blade are also available on Amazon. Book four,  Camera Action…Murder! Is now available.


Faith also writes adventurous romantic suspense. Please see The Seeds of Time (book 1 in the Crossing series) and Harvest (book 2 in the Crossing series).

Thank you & I sincerely hope you enjoy your read.
