 Those in line to the Malenfer estate are succumbing to terrible ends – is a supernatural legacy at work, or something entirely more human? Young Irish mercenary Dermot Ward retreats to Paris at the close of World War I where he drinks to forget his experiences, especially the death of his comrade, Arthur Malenfer. But Arthur has not forgotten Dermot. Dead but not departed, Arthur has unfinished business and needs the help of the living.

Upon his arrival at Malenfer Manor, Dermot finds himself embroiled in a mystery of murder, succession, and ambition. Dermot falls in love with the youngest Malenfer, the beautiful fey Simonne, but in his way are Simonne’s mismatched fiancé, her own connections to the spirit world, Dermot’s guilt over the circumstances of Arthur’s death… and a curse.

About the author

 Born and raised in Scotland, Iain is a writer of classic mysteries. 

The World Wars left Iain's family with generations of widows. As a result, Iain has always been interested in the tangible effects of history on family dynamics and in the power of narrative to awaken those long dead. For the characters in Murder at Malenfer, he drew on childhood reminiscences and verbal family history--though he hastens to add that his family had barely a penny, far less a manor, and any ghosts dwelt only in memory. 
His second novel, Countdown to Death, is an an homage to the Agatha Christie classic--with a shocking new twist.
He lives in Vancouver, Canada, with his wife and two children.
