The Crimson Rooms (Paperback)

Katharine McMahon


The Crimson Rooms is a thriller about Evelyn, a woman who is haunted by the death of her younger brother James during the First World War. Determined to make a career for herself as one of the first female lawyers, she is shocked when a woman appears on her doorstep claiming to have mothered James's child and her world is soon turned upside down. At first, she finds it hard to trust Meredith but also finds this new arrival challenging her work-obsessed lifestyle. Despite her legal career not setting the world alight, Evelyn is assigned to custody and murder cases that show she will still be able to make a difference. Meanwhile, Meredith makes an Earth-shattering accusation about James. Evelyn falls in love with an engaged man and with the murder case coming to a head, she takes matters into her own hands. Katharine McMahon beautifully describes the characters and the situation they find themselves in.
