By all accounts, Lindisfarne Island in Northumberland is a special place. For more than a thousand years, visitors have sensed The Other there, more so than anywhere else. The veil between the physical and spiritual realms is known to be thin on Holy Island, an isolated spot cutoff from mainland England twice a day by the North Sea. When Scottish detective Duncan Dewar agrees to solve an age old mystery on the island, he has his doubts. Discovering clues hidden in an ancient labyrinth at Norcroft Manor and uncovering an almost century old murder could get him killed. Will he meet the same fate as his predecessor or discover an early monastery’s hidden riches? Follow Duncan as he explores England’s Cradle of Christianity while navigating romance, family relationships, and his latest nemesis, Viking.

Victoria Benchley’s recipe for writing fiction includes the right amount of mystery, suspense, and romance, a dose of humor, a dash of thrills, a heaping cup of quirky and charming characters, and just a pinch of creepiness (to taste, if needed). She lives with her husband of over twenty years and their two children on the West Coast of the United States. She grew up reading the classics and counts Dickens and the Bronte Sisters as her favorite authors. After a career in corporate America, spanning public accounting, cash management, and real estate investments at national and international firms, she chose to become a stay-at-home mom and full-time taxi cab driver for her children. She is a Christian and enjoys quilting, cooking, and traveling (including road trips!), as well as reading and writing. On Sunday afternoons during football season, she can be found enjoying an NFL game.
