Cornelius Armstrong is a Detective Inspector in Edwardian Carlisle. In this, the first volume of his Casebook, Armstrong investigates the brutal murder of a young Italian immigrant on the corner of West Walls and Dean Tait’s Lane in November 1903. In doing so, Cornelius uncovers a far wider web of underworld crime.
In the second adventure, a seemingly innocent gathering at a Christmas party inadvertently leads Armstrong into a mystery dating back six hundred years to the death of Edward I on Burgh Marsh.
