A Snapshot of Murder
- Taking the perfect photograph can be murder ...
- Yorkshire, 1928. Indomitable sleuth Kate Shackleton is taking a well-deserved break from her detective work -
- - and indulging in her other passion: photography. When her local Photographic Society proposes an outing, Kate jumps at the chance to visit Haworth and Stanbury, in the heart of Brontë country, the setting for Wuthering Heights.
- But when an obnoxious member of their party is murdered, the group is thrown into disarray.
- Is the murderer amongst them, or did the loud-mouthed Tobias have more enemies than they might have imagined?
- Armed with her wit and wiles, and of course her trusty camera,
- it's up to Kate to crack the case, and get that perfect shot too . . ..
