‘Dying in the Wool’ is a mystery for fictional amateur sleuth Kate Shackleton set in a quiet Yorkshire village. Why not a lively, thriving, bustling even noisy Yorkshire village I do not know but that is artistic license for you! At least there is a working mill in this fictional village of Bridgestead, something you don’t see every day nowadays.
Plenty of West Riding social and local history has been used in researching this book and it flows along at a brisk pace.
The author Frances Brody is a pseudonym for Frances McNeil, scriptwriter, playwright, author of four novels and winner of the Elizabeth Elgin Award for best new saga of the millennium. If you have already read Dying in the Wool try another in the Kate Shackleton series.
