Beschreibung

Where Euphemia is concerned, lightening does strike in the same place twice…

Euphemia has accepted an invitation to Exposition Universelle in Ghent, Belgium – which unbeknown to anyone would be the last great gathering of the greatest minds of the time before the world plunged into World War I.
This time escorted by her own chaperone, Mrs Brown, Euphemia and Bertram reveal in the glorious exhibits on display – and in Bertram’s case also in the tea rooms. Nothing can possibly go wrong – until Mrs Brown is found dead with a confession that she is a terrorist, devoted to destroying science. Unable to believe this, and not wanting to be accused of transporting her into the country, Bertram, Euphemia and Rory, attempt to dig up the truth. Only to uncover yet around murder among the white washed villas for the Exposition.

What people are saying about A Death Overseas...

I'm never disappointed by Caroline Dunford's books. They're highly enjoyable period murder mysteries with an on going personal story for the main characters. The only issue is now I've got to wait for the next one!’ Goodreads five star review

‘I have read the whole Euphemia Martins series now and love the way the characters develop through the stories. I have laughed out loud several times, love the witty exchanges in conversation, love the way the characters are loosely intertwined with a history of the time. Thoroughly entertaining and light reading, and would recommend them as a fabulous set of books about the feisty Euphemia’s rise from house-maid to lady’s companion, solving several murders along the way.’ Amazon five star review

Über den Autor

Caroline Dunford has previously worked as a psychotherapist, a journalist and a non-fiction author. She has a deep love of story, which she believes is at the heart of human nature. She first declared, at five years old, that she wanted to be a writer but was told there was little options of it being a full time job. Undeterred, she started writing short stories, plays and mini novels. She became known for writing plays at primary school including casting and directing the performances. She then grew up and went to university, studied sensible subjects and decided she didn't like the 'real world' one bit. She started out as a freelance journalist and writer, sending off short stories to every magazine she could find and received rejection after rejection until she learnt to better her writing. As a journalist, she was somewhat of a failure as she didn't like upsetting people and therefore never made it to tabloid press. She then studied a part time degree in psychology, which she enjoyed more than her past studied subjects. Caroline then spent years working with other people helping them shape their personal life stories (she is a Freudian at heart) until she decided to take the plunge and write her own stories full time. She believes that writing fiction is now the only way she can stay sane. Euphemia Martins was partly inspired by the family legend of her great, great grandmother, who ran away from a very rich family and ended up working in service. Unlike Euphemia, she found the life far too hard, but was rescued by a tobacconist, whom she married and with whom she had thirteen children. Murder casts a sharp light over those around it, revealing characters and morality in unique sharpness. What forces one to take the life of another and how those around react reveals so much about human nature and the fragility of society. Caroline finds the period before WW1, when everyone was setting their playing pieces on the board for global conflict fascinating. She is also intrigued by the start of female emancipation and the class-system breakdown that was taking hold. Caroline loves puzzles and finds human beings the most exciting puzzles of all. But above all, she believes life must be enjoyed with humour. We must all bring whatever light we can to the darkness.
