This ebook bundle contains the first four novels of the Thaddeus Lewis Mystery series. During the wild era before Confederation, Thaddeus Lewis, a “saddlebag” preacher, mourns the mysterious death of his daughter Sarah as he rides to his new posting in Prince Edward County. But soon other deaths hang over Lewis’s head. And the list of suspects is growing … “A four star selection that will be loved by all mystery fans.” — Suspense Magazine “Kellough does a fine job of bringing life to the times and to her ministerial hero on horseback.” — The National Post Includes: The Burying Ground — Thaddeus Lewis Mystery #4 (NEW!) Thaddeus reunites with an old friend in less-than-cheerful circumstances to catch a grave robber who is preying on a vagrants’ cemetery and stealing more than bodies. The two soon find themselves entangled in a mystery that stretches back to the typhus epidemic of 1847, and the legacy of a scandal many would prefer left buried. 47 Sorrows — Thaddeus Lewis Mystery #3 In 1847 “Black” 100,000 Irish emigrants are fleeing to Canada. When a corpse washes up naked but for a small green ribbon, the mystery exposes a vendetta that began in Ireland. Sowing Poison — Thaddeus Lewis Mystery #2 The wife of a vanished man begins to hold seances for villagers, claiming she can contact the dead. Thaddeus’s ethical objections propel him on a twisted path. On the Head of a Pin — Thaddeus Lewis Mystery #1 With a serial killer loose in Upper Canada, Lewis must track the culprit across a colony convulsed by invasion and fear. His only clues are a Book of Proverbs and a small painted pin left with the victims.Original Publisher: Toronto, DundurnLanguage(s): English
