The Poisoned Island is my second novel, a sequel to my first, The English Monster.
Someone nicely described The English Monster as ‘Regency X-Files.’ Well, this is Regency Fringe.
A ship arrives from the strange, doomed island of Tahiti, carrying a cargo of plants destined for the gardens at Kew. But not all the plants are what they seem. And when certain members of the crew are found dead, Constable Charles Horton and his magistrate, John Harriott, must once again dig up the buried crimes of England’s past.
