Wyndminster mystery novel series.
History doesn't stay buried in the past, not when it keeps shoving itself into the here and how.
Persimmon Grainger discovers that dyslexia brings special abilities and intuitions which help in solving mysteries. She tackles her own vulnerabilities and devastating past events while making sense of the connections between fabulous artefacts, histories, fables, crimes, wolves and movies. All are intertwined in Wyndminster, a town where students, tourists and Dark Ages myths coexist.
The Silver Map. A globe with strange markings may be the first layer of a map that charts underground passageways and lost rivers. But some tunnels are unstable, and above ground is a stalker.
The Golden Street. A man with a potentially dangerous artefact has gone missing, and the scientists looking for him are dubious. On the streets, the vengeance of St. Child may not be buried in legend.
The Ruby Window. Nothing’s more cosy coming up to Christmas than a good old Victorian murder mystery, right? Unless Wyndminster’s own serial killer, the Dust Squire, has stepped out from the past.
The Lost Rivers. A Wyndminster Decameron. Ten weeks, ten speakers, one hundred stories, a linked miscellany of histories, herstories, mysteries, memories, recipes, wolves, legends, ghosts, killers, treasure, jokes, puns, tunnels, creatures, horrors, saints, research, testimonies, turnips, graves, books and birds about the Lost Rivers of Wyndminster.
The Emerald Hall. Is the Wolf real? Everything points to him just being a figment of the imagination, an expression of fear. Threat sometimes whispers through time, and while some old stories are fanciful, others may be warnings.
