Death on the Sapphire | Harlequin Books

Illustration and lettering for a book in R.J. Koreto’s Lady Ffolkes Mystery series. For Harlequin and art directed by Kathleen Oudit.


Suffragette Lady Frances Ffolkes campaigns for social justice and skirts the strict rules of Edwardian society with the help of her best friend and maid, June Mallow.

Death on the Sapphire: When Lady Frances is asked to locate the unpublished memoir of Boer War hero Major Daniel Colcombe, a longtime family friend, she accepts the case at once. But Lady Frances soon discovers that Danny’s recent “suicide” is highly suspicious. And his account of the Sapphire River debacle implicates those at the highest levels of British government. Now Lady Frances and Mallow will rattle unquiet skeletons from Mayfair to the East End’s roughest neighborhoods…and set a trap for one scandalously clever murderer.
