An Alexandra Gladstone Mystery

by Paula Paul


Book Details

The village of Newton-Upon-Sea is in the grip of a measles epidemic—with four deaths alone in the last two weeks. And if that’s not enough to keep Dr. Alexandra Gladstone busy, something even more deadly is sweeping the town—an epidemic of murder. Alexandra’s household has been affected by both.

Medicine in 1881 is limited, and there’s only so much Alexandra can do to treat measles. Tracking down a murderer presents even more limitations and danger. Her quest is further complicated by the arrival of her former lover, flooding her with memories—and not all of them pleasant. Major Soames quickly becomes a prime suspect for the murder and poses an additional threat: to reveal Alexandra’s darkest secrets.
