Part 8 of the Kate Shackleton series.

							Nothing ever happens in August, so Kate goes off on a long-overdue holiday to Whitby to visit her friend Alma who works there as a fortune teller. She's been looking forward to a relaxing seaside sojourn, but, upon arrival, she discovers that Alma's daughter, Felicity, has disappeared, leaving her mother a note and the pawn ticket for their only asset: a watch-guard. What makes this more intriguing is that the jeweler who advanced Felicity the thirty shillings is Jack Phillips, Alma's current gentleman friend. Kate can't help but become involved, so she goes to the jeweller's shop to get some answers. While there, she makes a horrifying discovery in the back room, and it becomes clear that her services are needed. But she's met by a wall of silence by town officials, who are keen to maintain Whitby's idyllic facade, so it's up to Kate-ably assisted by Jim Sykes and Mrs. Sugden-to discover the truth behind Felicity's disappearance. 

And they say nothing ever happens in August...

"In Brody's tightly woven eighth mystery set in 1920s England, PI Kate Shackleton takes a holiday in the resort town of Whitby...Brody provides plenty of period flavor and just enough clues to point armchair sleuths to the solution." - Publishers Weekly

"Kate finds herself drawn into a complex case redolent of classic interwar mysteries in which motives abound and old secrets are eventually revealed. In addition to re-creating the feeling of the golden age, Brody this time provides a stronger mystery than usual." - Kirkus Reviews
