A wonderful new series of mysteries with a difference from the author of Isabella - the only first novel ever to have been shortlisted for the Romantic Novel of the Year Award Natasha Blake is a detective with a difference. She's an ancestor detective, an ambitious young genealogist with a passion for history, whose choice of career is partly driven by the mystery of her own roots. The disappearance of a young girl, Bethany, appears to be linked in some way to Lizzie Siddall, the haunting ethereal Pre-Raphaelite model and artist, whose life was cut short by an overdose of laudanum. Was it accident or suicide? Why is Bethany so obsessed with her, and at the same time so determined to put herself beyond the reach of her lover, Adam?

About the Author:

Fiona Mountain worked for the BBC for nine years and now runs a public relations company. Her first novel, "Isabella", published in 1999, is the only first novel to have been shortlisted for the Romantic Novel of the Year Award. "Isabella" is a fascinating retelling of the story of the mutiny on the "Bounty" from the point of view of the forbidden lovers.

"Pale as the Dead", her second novel, is the start of a highly original new mystery series starring ancestor detective Natasha Blake. Fiona Mountain lives in the Cotswolds, is married to composer Tim Mountain, and has three sons.
