Here at TWG, it’s pretty clear that we like to shout about books whether they cost 99p/c or £99. Now, whilst price is irrelevant where books are concerned in my humble opinion, I would be lying if I said I didn’t get excited about 99p e-books (even though I do feel guilty about the minimal author return on said books). However, today I am bringing you information of a book which has had its cost lowered for the duration of this blog tour. Bargain!
Blackmail, Sex and Lies is a story of deception, scandal, and fractured traditional Victorian social values. It is the tale of a naïve, young woman caught up in a whirlwind romance with a much older man. However, both have personality flaws that result in poor choices, and ultimately lead to a tragic end.
For 160 years, people have believed Madeleine Smith to have been guilty of murder. But was she? Could she have been innocent after all?
This Victorian murder mystery, based on a true story, takes place in Glasgow, Scotland, 1857. It explores the disastrous romance between the vivacious socialite, Madeleine Hamilton Smith, and her working class lover, Pierre Emile L’Angelier.
After a two-year torrid, and forbidden relationship with L’Angelier, that takes place against her parents’ wishes, the situation changes dramatically when William Minnoch enters the scene. This new man in Madeleine’s life is handsome, rich, and of her social class. He is also a man of whom her family approve.
Sadly, insane jealous rages, and threats of blackmail, are suddenly silenced by an untimely death.
If you’re into historical crime novels, then perhaps ‘Blackmail, Sex and Lies’ by Kathryn McMaster, might just be the book for you! For a limited time only, the author has lowered the price of the book to a mere 99p/c! To make use of this fantastic price drop, you too can purchase a copy today from Amazon UK // Amazon US.
