DIAMOND DREADFULS

 

A Murder at Warren House

Volume 1

Diamond Dreadfuls are the perfect little read for someone on the go. After all, you have all the clues, but can you guess whodunit?

Retired Detective, Archibald Clayborn is summoned to his childhood sweetheart’s family home; Warren House, after the death of her husband. Coming to Camilla’s aid, Clayborn suspects he is there to comfort her.

 

He couldn’t be more wrong.

Camilla believes her husband was murdered and her list of suspects are currently in Warren House. Clayborn agrees to help, however, before he can embark on his investigations, another murder happens!

 

But who is the culprit?

 

Is it…

  • The somewhat standoffish maid, Mrs. June Carter? She may be pleasant to Clayborn, but does that extend to the rest of the guests?

  • Or could it be Mr. Tracey Mars, the late Lesley Cartwright’s business partner? His bullish attitude and short temper aren’t the only things to make him a suspect, he may have a motive too.

  • Then there’s Dana Trudeau, a Hollywood actress traveling with Mars. A temptress to be sure, but does she have ulterior motives for coming to Warren House?

  • The last of the Hollywood troupe, the reserved—but outspoken when provoked—scriptwriter, Mr. John Smithe doesn’t seem to fit the picture of a murderer, but Clayborn can’t deny motive might be there with the longstanding friction between his employers.

  • Or is the murderer closer to home? Could it be the family physician, Dr. Royce Trenton? His outrage at being asked the simplest of questions does make Clayborn suspicious that he’s hiding something.

  • Last, there is Dr. Trenton’s young niece, Diana Darling. An innocent to be sure, except for one thing; she wants to be an actress. Is Miss Darling as innocent as she appears, or is it all an act?

 

Clayborn has his work cut out for him to catch this killer. Perhaps you can help him?

Volume 4

Clayborn is back, and renovations at Warren House are complete. Before the doors to the newly refurbished hotel can be opened though, a new acquaintance, Mrs. Catherine Willowsby has asked a peculiar favor of our retired detective…to host séance.

Now, Mrs. Willowsby is not a superstitious woman, but the medium’s claims are hitting too close to home, and she feels an impartial eye is needed… what better eye than our pragmatic Clayborn?

 

But as Clayborn has become all too aware, the circles of upper society England are proving to be more treacherous than the wild plains of Africa, and what should have been a weekend of mysticism has ended in murder!

Ghosts of the Past

Volume 5

Diamond Dreadfuls are the perfect little read for someone on the go. After all, you have all the clues, but can you guess whodunit?

On the eve of the opening of Warren House as a new boutique hotel, the first of the guests arrive. Amongst them, Clayborn’s old partner of nearly twenty years, Mr. Reginald Snow and his wife Regina.

Regina, who should be celebrating landing a huge book deal, is at wit’s end, devastated that her dearest friend in all the world believes she stole the idea from him. In an attempt to heal the rift, Reginald invites both up to Warren House, hoping the country air will come to his aid and make the two friends see sense.

 

Only, upon arrival, it would appear each of the other guests—even gentle Mrs. Willowsby—have all had run-ins with Regina in the past, and it seems her past life as a society page journalist may have caught up with her!

 

Clayborn had hoped this weekend would go off without a hitch, but as the opening evening wears on, secrets are revealed, ones that will shock the foundations of Warren House, ones even Clayborn won’t see coming…

 

Are you ready, friends? A murder is about to happen, and this time more than any other, Clayborn needs you to help him out!
