Murder in the Forbidden City
Qing Dynasty Mysteries Book 1
by Amanda Roberts
Genre: Historical Mystery
216 pages
Peking, 1867
When one of the Empress’s ladies-in-waiting is killed in the Forbidden
City, she orders Inspector Gong to find the killer. Unfortunately, as
a man, he is forbidden from entering the Inner Court. How is he
supposed to solve a murder when he cannot visit the scene of the
crime or talk to the women in the victim’s life? He won’t be able
to solve this crime alone.
The widowed Lady Li is devastated when she finds out about the murder of
her sister-in-law, who was serving as the Empress’s
lady-in-waiting. She is determined to discover who killed her, even
if it means assisting the rude and obnoxious Inspector Gong and going
undercover in the Forbidden City.
Together, will Lady Li and Inspector Gong be able to find the murderer before
he – or she – strikes again?
Murder in the British Quarter
Qing Dynasty Mysteries Book 2
When a young Chinese woman is murdered within the British Quarter of the
foreign legation, Inspector Gong is ordered by the Imperial Court to
solve the crime before the incident escalates into war between China
and the foreign powers. The only problem? Inspector Gong doesn’t
speak English. And he is hardly the type of man to be accepted by the
British elite living in Peking.
Once again, he must turn to the one woman who can help him.
The woman he can’t stop thinking about.
Lady Li is trying to forget about Inspector Gong. He’s a danger to
herself, her position, and her children’s future. But when he comes
once again knocking on her door and asking for her assistance in
solving a case, she can’t resist, despite her better judgment.
Lady Li’s language and diplomatic abilities allow her to freely enter
the world of the Western visitors, but tensions between the
foreigners and local people are increasing by the hour.
Will Lady Li and Inspector Gong be able to solve the crime without the
answer leading China to war?
