The Daughters of Gentlemen

The Daughters of Gentlemen

A Frances Doughty Mystery

The sequel to The Poisonous Seed is Frances Doughty’s first case as a private detective.

With curious goings-on at a respectable private school for well brought up girls, the governors naturally call in a lady detective to investigate, but soon it becomes a case of murder. As election fever hits Bayswater and the formidable ladies of the Bayswater Women’s Suffrage Society swing into action, Frances discovers the dark secrets that lie behind the lace curtains.


"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!"
