Bresciano Mystery: The Murder of Whirligig Lane (Sam Benady & Mary Chiappe)

Bresciano Mystery: The Murder of Whirligig Lane (Sam Benady & Mary Chiappe)

By Sam Benady and Mary Chiappe

A damp, grey morning in October 1813: Wellington is well on his way to driving the French out of Spain, but the Peninsular War is not yet won. In the fortress city of Gibraltar a new yellow fever epidemic claims lives daily. The dead cart plies its grisly trade collecting bodies, but one corpse, that of a young, beautiful and aristocratic Spanish woman, is not ‘yellow enough’, yet no one seems to care unduly about this death. There are more pressing matters occupying the irascible Town Major, matters of spies and the security of the fortress, so it is left to Giovanni Bresciano, a local businessman of Anglo Genoese descent to resolve the mystery of her death.
