Victorian London’s private detective Colin Pendragon learns that the cost of wealth can indeed be dear as he investigates the grisly fate of a well-heeled financier…
When wealthy Edmond Connicle suddenly disappears, his distraught wife enlists the services of master sleuth Colin Pendragon and his loyal partner, Ethan Pruitt. Already on the case, however, is Scotland Yard’s Inspector Varcoe. He suspects the Connicles’ West African scullery maid of doing in her employer, especially when a badly burned body is discovered on the estate grounds with a sack of Voodoo fetishes buried beneath it.
But all is not as it seems, and as more bodies are found, the pressure mounts on Varcoe, forcing him to forge an uneasy alliance with his nemesis, Pendragon. At the same time, Mrs. Connicle’s fragile mental state appears increasingly more precarious. Could madness, not black magic, be at the root of these murders? To untangle the twisted truth, Pendragon and Pruitt must penetrate the hidden lives of the elite and expose the malevolent machinations of a ruthless killer…

“The novel is well-paced…the interplay between Pendragon and Pruitt is interesting and complex…a number of unusual twists and turns.”

4.5 Stars! Gregory Harris' best yet! The Connicle Curse is the third installment in Gregory Harris' Colin Pendragon Mystery series. Collin Pendragon, is the bane of the Chief Inspector of Scotland Yard's very existence as the London papers praise Pendragon for his excellent abilities of deduction which seem to thwart him to the very end casting doubt on his own fine abilities and that of the Yard!
Colin Pendragon may have met his most puzzling case yet! Although determined to solve the case Colin is left feeling lead by the perpetrator of this crime down a path of their choosing, much to Colin's displeasure! An unaccustomed pairing with his arch nemesis, Inspector Emmett Varcoe of Scotland Yard is even more vexing. Colin with his trusted partner Ethan Pruitt will be lead down many a dark trail while they remain determined to bring justice to the innocents caught in this ever-growing web of deceit.
