Praise for The Serpent Pool... "A story that is complex and intellect-ually stimulating." -Booklist Seven years ago, Bethany Friend was found drowned in the lonely Serpent Pool in England's Lake District. Now, to win justice for Bethany's dying mother, DCI Hannah Scarlett of the Cold Case Squad re-opens the case. Then Hannah meets Louise Kind, sister of historian Daniel Kind. Louise has just confessed to her brother that she struck her lover with a knife, but the victim has vanished. Searching for answers, Hannah and Daniel-who is researching the opium-addicted 19th-century English writer Thomas De Quincey-encounter dark secrets and strange obsessions that oddly echo De Quincey's drug-fueled writings. Martin Edwards has published 12 novels, edited 16 crime fiction anthologies, and written a book about homicide investigation. He is a well-known reviewer and commentator on the genre. www.martinedwardsbooks.com

Praise for an earlier Lake District mystery... "Crisply written...solid fare for fans of modern British police procedurals." -Publishers Weekly of The Arsenic Labyrinth On Halloween, just before WWI, a young woman's corpse was found, a makeshift shroud frozen to her battered face.
