A KILLER TO UNMASK – on an English country estate. The police have given up, but Jennifer Lloyd has a devious plan.
A FEISTY TELEVISION REPORTER – prepared to go the extra mile to secure her career in television. Blogging deficiencies or a dodgy CV might otherwise lead to her downfall.
A HIGH RISK STRATEGY – accusing someone of murder while filming his beloved gardens. Will Jennifer’s self-defence skills save her when the knives come out?
Wealthy landowner, Digby Barrington-Smith, was arrested three years ago after the suspicious drowning of his wife within the grounds of their famous Dorset attraction: Solent House and Gardens. Despite police suspicions, due to lack of evidence, and because their Serbian handyman, Toma, suspiciously disappeared immediately afterwards, Digby was released. So why has he since become a virtual hermit when once he liked nothing better than to chat with visitors to his beloved gardens? And what happened to Toma? After the trauma of an abused childhood in a children’s home, feisty, funny, but damaged Jennifer Lloyd, has focused on developing a career as a television presenter - unfortunately founded on an over-imaginative CV and a fictitious degree. To raise her profile, she plans to produce a documentary about the gardens and Digby’s expertise as a plantsman: culminating in unexpectedly exposing him as a murderer - on-camera. Can she gain the trust of this eccentric lurking in virtual squalor within the grand house? Can she worm her way into finding out more than the police by befriending his family and staff? Will Jennifer survive an escalating series of threats and a knife attack? Was there one murder or two? And one murderer or two?

As most fiction writers know, characters don't typically spring from an author's pen to page as full-blown concepts: they evolve, like a sculpture from a piece of clay, as the story moves on. This wasn't the case, however, for author Ian Kingsley as he wrote The Grave Concerns of Jennifer Lloyd. His...
