Friday, May 28, 2021

Author Shelley Adina is out with The Judge Wore Lamp Black, Book 5 in her Mysterious Devices series. The action takes place in Port Townsend, Washington in an alt-history 1895, where Daisy and Freddie Linden are arrested as spies and brought before “Hanging” Judge Wilson Bonnell. Later, their long-lost father is accused of murdering the judge and they find themselves in search of the real killer.

The novel is available in paperback and e-book formats from multiple booksellers. See the author’s website for links and an excerpt.

The book follows the February release of Magnificent Devices: Manor House Quartet, a collection of four previously released novellas in her Magnificent Devices series. The 400-page edition consists of Carrick House, Selwyn Place, Holly Cottage, and Gwynn Place. The stories, set in an alternate Victorian era, revolve around Lady Claire Trevelyan, aka the Lady of Devices. The author writes that the series is for readers who like “old-fashioned adventure, brave women, clever children, and strong-willed chickens.” Again, you can learn more on her website.
