The Miss Seeton Series: Books 4-5 and Prequel
Heron Carvic, Hamilton Crane
This collection brings together the fourth and fifth adventures in the Miss Seeton Mysteries series by Heron Carvic, plus the series prequel by Hamilton Crane. While a picture may paint a thousand words, for this lovable retired art teacher, a sketch can catch a thousand criminals . . .
Miss Seeton Sings (Book 4) Miss Seeton boards the wrong plane and lands amidst a gang of European counterfeiters. One false note, and her new destination is deadly indeed.
Odds on Miss Seeton (Book 5) Miss Seeton in diamonds and furs at the roulette table? It’s all a clever disguise for the high-rolling spinster . . . but the game of money and murder is all too real.
Miss Seeton’s Finest Hour (A Prequel) War-time England, and a young Miss Emily Seeton’s suspicious sketches call her loyalty into question—until she is recruited to uncover a case of sabotage.
Retired art teacher Miss Seeton steps in where Scotland Yard stumbles. Armed with only her sketch pad and umbrella, she is every inch an eccentric English spinster and the most endearing and unlikely master of detection.
