The Children Of Silence

The Children Of Silence

A Frances Doughty Mystery.

Harriet Antrobus, who suffers from incurable ear pain and tinnitus is anxious to prove that fragments of a corpse found in the Paddington canal basin are the remains of her husband Edwin, whose disappearance three years ago plunged her already troubled life into disarray. But who was the unknown man Edwin met in Bristol shortly before he vanished, why is Harriet’s hearing specialist suing the Bayswater School for the Deaf and how did her doctor lose his mind? Young detective Frances Doughty investigates, and there are crimes to be revealed and more bodies to be found, before she learns how to read the signs.

‘The Children of Silence’ is the fifth in the Frances Doughty Mystery series.

"I love writing about crime, especially Victorian crime. Before the launch of my fiction series set in Bayswater in the 1880s I researched and wrote true crime and historical biography.

It is that fascination for the nineteenth century and those contradictory Victorians that I now bring to my fiction writing. Frances Doughty’s adventures are only just beginning!"
