A Deadly Tonic

A stranger lies dead in her hallway… A mysterious note in his pocket… It looks like Eliza’s day out will have to wait…

Eliza Thomson Investigates

March 1900: Eliza Thomson loves solving murder investigations from the comfort of her drawing room. But things become real when a stranger turns up on her doorstep. After mumbling a few cryptic words, he promptly drops dead.

What did he mean?

And who wrote the mysterious note she finds in his pocket?

Determined to find answers, Eliza has no time to waste. Working with the police, and with the help of her friend Connie, she travels London in search of answers. But can she identify the killer before he strikes again?


A Deadly Tonic is the first standalone story in the Eliza Thomson Investigates series. If you are a fan of Miss Marple-style murder mysteries and historical heroines with attitude, you’ll love this step-back-in-time cozy series.
