The Missing Brontë
Publication Date: 28/02/2013
A Perry Trethowan book
Superintendent Perry Trethowan was enjoying a peaceful motoring holiday in North Yorkshire when he and his wife, Jan, had a strange encounter in a country pub. The seemingly unremarkable elderly spinster who introduced herself as Miss Edith Wing, a retired schoolmistress, proceeded to produce form her capacious blue handbag a yellowing manuscript – and claimed that it was part of an undiscovered novel by one of the Brontë sisters. Was it a clever forgery, or the literary sensation of the century?
What started out as a harmless holiday diversion for the superintendent turned into a hunt for a vicious
attacker as both Miss Wing and Perry himself found themselves in deadly danger.
