Publisher's Summary

The Murders at Fleat House is a suspenseful and utterly compelling crime novel from the author of the multimillion-selling The Seven Sisters series, Lucinda Riley.

The sudden death of a pupil in Fleat House at St Stephen’s–a small private boarding school in deepest Norfolk–is a shocking event that the headmaster is very keen to call a tragic accident.

But the local police cannot rule out foul play and the case prompts the return of high-flying Detective Inspector Jazmine ‘Jazz’ Hunter to the force. Jazz has her own private reasons for stepping away from her police career in London, and reluctantly agrees to front the investigation as a favour to her old boss.

Reunited with her loyal sergeant, she enters the closed world of the school and, as Jazz begins to probe the circumstances surrounding Charlie Cavendish’s tragic death, events are soon to take another troubling turn.

Charlie is exposed as an arrogant bully, and those around him had both motive and opportunity to switch the drugs he took daily to control his epilepsy.

As staff at the school close ranks, the disappearance of a young pupil and the death of an elderly classics master provide Jazz with important leads, but are destined to complicate the investigation further. As snow covers the landscape and another suspect goes missing, Jazz must also confront her personal demons . . .

Then, a particularly grim discovery at the school makes this the most challenging murder investigation of her career. Because Fleat House hides secrets darker than even Jazz could ever have imagined . . .

Superb in every way.

Realistic characters, interesting plot, clever reveals, and narrated by one of the best.
I wish this could have been a many book series but the author was taken far too soon.

Great read

Having read the Star Sisters books I thought I should try another of Lucinda Riley’s - this lived up to all my expectations - now I want to read everything she wrote. So sad she had such a short life but she has certainly left her mark

dated and questionable

the attitude towards domestic violence is gross and incredibly outdated.... sympathetic to the perpetrator and "she drove him to it". author's son gives a introduction including the decision not to edit this old manuscript posthumously and I wonder if that's what he's getting at. his introduction was a bit cryptic and apologetic without real explanation. the main character "looks like a supermodel". really wish they had made the decision to edit. mystery itself is just ok.

Couldn't get enough!

I listened to the Murders at Fleat House over three days every chance I could! It took so many twists and while I could see the ending coming the villain of the story was a shock!

Thoroughly enjoyable!

Great story with interesting plot twists and another awesome female lead.
A little different from Lucinda’s other books in that we don’t get taken back to the past in the same way, but in no way does this detract from the story.

Great listen.

Main character was very likeable. The case was intriguing and twisty. Old themes handled in a unique way.
Worth a listen.
