Chasing Dragons, Courting Death

Investigating unnatural deaths in 1920’s East End London.

The Last Post


This FREE novella is a prequel to the first novel in the series. It opens when May is driving ambulances at The Front in 1918, and leaves her amongst the blood, mud and bullets of the trenches just before a death closer to home forces her return to Poplar.



Foul Trade

It is March 1920 and May Keaps, the Poplar Coroner’s Officer, has her abilities tested to their limits when the body of a young man is discovered in a Limehouse alley. In an underworld of drug dealing and protection rackets it soon becomes clear that whoever is responsible intends to avoid the hangman’s noose by arranging to have May laid out on one of her own mortuary slabs.


Found Drowned

On streets where poverty and exploitation walk hand-in-hand everyone has a price. And some are more valuable dead than alive. But to whom? The discovery of a body in the River Thames leads May Keaps to believe that when children go missing, the answer is to follow the money. Except she underestimated the corrupting influence of power . . .
