How could Emily know, as she left her house that evening, that she was making an appointment with death? 

From Helen Smith, one of our favorite UK authors … the perfect British mystery for just $.99

“This is a perfectly formed mystery in every way; each necessary clue is present and followed up, though, as you would expect from a well-constructed mystery, there are plenty of false clues and blind alleys.”

Here’s the set-up:

It’s bonfire night in London. Emily has been invited to a party in the big house at the end of her street by the new owners, whom she has never met. Emily’s dog Jessie has recently died so Emily is feeling a little raw and emotional. How could she know, as she left her house that evening, that she was making an appointment with death?

Three Sisters is short fiction – approximately 17,000 words, equivalent to around 70 printed pages. It is the first story in a new comic mystery series by award-winning novelist Helen Smith, featuring amateur sleuth, Emily Castles. It contains no profanity or sexual content.

What the Reviewers Say
“I bought “The Three Sisters” before the product description was even up, because I am a big fan of Helen Smith and all her books, and I was not disappointed. At 70-ish pages, this story is longer than your average short story, yet even in a short space, Helen manages to create a sympathetic and likeable main character, Emily Castles. I look forward to reading the further adventures of Emily.”
–Anne Marie

“Love this short little mystery. I read it in one afternoon and REALLY enjoyed the way the author set up the story. Kind of a murder mystery theater gone wrong. Makes me wish I could have been there. 🙂 Keep ’em coming Helen!”
