A Laura Marlin Mystery Dead Man’s Cove


Laura’s newly discovered uncle offers no rules when she goes to live with him in St Ives, other than to forbid her from exploring Dead Man’s Cove. Laura uses tips offered in her Detective Matt Walker novels to uncover the truths about Tariq, her new, silent friend, the hostile housekeeper, and the unexplained disappearances of her new Uncle Calvin.

This is a pacy, well plotted, enjoyable book that I really recommend. It is ideal for committed readers, who would appreciate realistic action and motives, unravelled by purposeful characters. We suggest readers aged from 9 years, would enjoy ‘Dead Man’s Cove.’
