Hey, Sleuth, and welcome to!

My name is Saffron, author of the Lucas Rathbone Mysteries, and I want to welcome you to my home on the internet!

Please have a snoop around and find out more about Lucas and co, check out the books, and find out how to keep up to date with all things Rathbone :)

The Story So Far

You quote Father Brown,

you’re dying to visit Midsomer,

and Phryne Fisher is your style icon.


Now, it’s time to meet Lucas Rathbone.

The Lucas Rathbone Mysteries is an ongoing series of old-fashioned murder mysteries set in 1920s England, featuring reluctant amateur sleuth Lucas, his rather more enthusiastic girlfriend Clara...

... And a whole host of ghosts.

Because Lucas has the "gift" of being able to see and speak to spirits - although it's a gift he'd rather like to return, thank you very much.

Think Agatha Christie meets Sixth Sense, and you're along the right lines.

Clara Jenkins is in at the deep end.

Seventeen years old and a fortnight into her new job as an artist at a big London newspaper, Clara finds herself sketching the first dead body she's ever seen: a woman pulled from the River Thames.

Tommy Kilbourne, her new roguish colleague and not-so-secret admirer, is convinced of foul play. With the police happy to accept the easiest solution, it's up to the journalistic duo to investigate what really happened to Elisabeth Peasemarch.

But when their sleuthing takes a dangerous turn, could Clara's first adventure in the big city be her last?
