Trapped in a Maze - the joy of writing historical murder mysteries!

It seems like ages since I penned a post for this blog, but life and other commitments have chipped away at the days and the weeks, thus time has slipped past almost unnoticed. That's not to say I haven't been writing. I have, and murder mysteries are complicated stories in which red-herrings (fishy clues) lead readers along dark alleys, and over hill and dell not knowing when a chance sighting of the murderer will occur, if at all. 
Whilst working on the case this author has likewise ended up in a maze. Yep, the macabre murders in "For Love of Captain Jack" have led to the journal of a dead woman, but can it reveal sufficient about the murderer for Captain Jack to expose the beast and bring him to justice? Should justice be meted by sword, pistol or the hangman's noose?

More updates on this novel later...
