Lady Collendon’s Cook

Lady Collendon’s Cook

Meet Mrs Green – good cook and evil poisoner. When Mrs Green entered domestic service as a cook in the 1920s, she had no idea she was going to end up as a convicted criminal. Anyone who personally knew her was convinced she was innocent. But when a German diplomat dropped down dead after attending a dinner party she’d cooked for, suspicions were raised. The fact that she had a Jewish background counted against her. Had she poisoned him?

It was now a time of political tensions in Europe and the authorities were quick to act. A conniving British politician leads the way. Either prosecute Mrs Green or risk offending the Germans and starting a war! Unfortunately, there were just too many powerful people ranged against her. A miscarriage of justice and a guilty verdict seals her fate.

Somehow, she will have to find a way out of her terrible predicament. But three questions remained: What was the butler up to? Was Mrs Green really as innocent as she claimed to be? And who was the mysterious person she kept writing to?
