Summary

A Deadly Game of Sacrifice and Death

Once more the pen of Chris Longmuir, author of the acclaimed Dundee Crime Series, draws us into the world of mystery and intrigue, this time in Dundee during the year 1919. And she has created a new sleuth unlike any other currently in print.

Kirsty Campbell, former suffragette and a policewoman in Britain’s newly formed women’s police service, returns to her home town of Dundee to become the city’s first policewoman. Her struggle for acceptance in the all male police force is not easy, and she fights for recognition. But Kirsty is not easily intimidated and, despite police attempts to curtail her activities, she defies her superior officer to pursue an investigation into a murder which is linked to missing orphan girls.

Kirsty is an unusual character with a fascinating history and background. She has demons of her own to fight, as well as becoming involved in a deadly game of sacrifice and death? But how will she cope when the sins of the past come back to haunt her?

This book was inspired by Mrs Jean Forsyth Thomson, Dundee’s first policewoman who worked in the city from 1919 to 1921. However, Kirsty Campbell is not modelled on Mrs Thomson and is a completely fictitious character.

Chris Longmuir is an award winning novelist. Her previous crime novels have won the Pitlochry Award, and the Dundee International Book Prize.
