  • (1888PressRelease) May 24, 2014 - About the Book:
    This novel, the fourth in the Rev. Paltoquet supernatural mystery series, tells of the murder of a 17 year old girl on Wandsworth Common in 1954, and the attempts by Chief Inspector Neverholme and his sidekick Sergeant Rathbone to solve it.

    It also tells the story of two sisters, one pretty, one plain, and the effect the pretty one's fiancÚ has on their lives dating back to the end of the First World War. These two sisters harbour a tragic secret and are regarded many in the neighbourhood as 'witches'. Dispensing herbal remedies and keeping a mangy black cat add to their air of mystery and seem to bear out the rumours.

    The story also revolves around the arrest and subsequent trial for murder of the victim's father, and his eventual acquittal.

    As ever, the main protagonist, Reverend Paltoquet, the vicar of St Stephen's, and his friend Robbie MacTavish, the popular local GP, join forces in helping the police to solve the mysteries that surround the sisters' past and the gruesome murder of a pregnant teenager.

    Titles in the Reverend Paltoquet Mystery Series are:

    The Bockhampton Road Murders
    Haunted Christmas
    The Possession of November Jones
    The Witches of Wandsworth
    So Long at the Fair
    The Man Who Was Death
    The Dark Side of the Mirror

    About the Author:
    Pat Herbert lives in London, England. She worked as a typist for a publishing company, based in Blackfriars, then trained to become a Chartered Librarian before working for British Gypsum in London's West End. She was always interested in returning to publishing and took on the job of PA to the Managing Director of Thomson Books, which owned publishers including Hamish Hamilton, Michael Joseph and Sphere at the time, before they were taken over by Penguin.

    Since then, Pat worked in recruitment and she is currently working part-time for a private cardiac clinic, and writes during her spare time (with her boss's permission, of course). She is now writing the next suspenseful novel in the Paltoquet mystery series which is entitled "Sleeping With the Dead".

    Pat loves reading modern crime novels mainly (Peter James, Peter Robinson, Ruth Rendell) and she has an extensive film library. She was brought up in a cinema as her mother was an usherette, and many of her Paltoquet books lend themselves to the big screen.
