Verona seemed the perfect daughter, but surprised her friends by leaving home in Devon to attend art school in London. When she returned home, it was to die - pregnant and with her body full of morphine. Her cousin, Nell Bray, isn't convinced of suicide and discovers Verona's double life.
Gillian Linscott has been a journalist with the GUARDIAN and Parliamentary Correspondent with the BBC. An adaptation of one of her Nell Bray mysteries has been broadcast on Radio 4.From AudioFile:
The apparent suicide of 19-year old Verona North drives her father's cousin, suffragette Nell Bray, to investigate the death as a possible murder. It's 1914 in England, and Nell must contend with persecution from the government, suspicion from the family, and a host of colorful anarchists and other characters who were part of Verona's life. This gives Lin Sagovsky a chance to exercise her ability with voices; she's especially good with the women. Her first-person narration as Nell brings out the suffragette's intelligence and independence. The dénouement is less interesting than the period details--crackling phones, vicious anti-feminist police, and Great War clouds on the horizon.
