American writer Nora Tierney is house hunting in Oxford to solidify her little family that includes her almost-year old son, Sean, and her partner, Det. Insp. Declan Barnes. But why does she feel like she's being followed?
When tracking devices confirm Nora has a stalker, it sets off a chain of events that connect to Declan's murder investigation of a young Oxford art restorer, and will bring bioterrorism and a psychopath into their lives, while Sean's hangs in the balance. The fourth Nora Tierney English mystery is the most tension-filled yet, a meditation on what is family and home, combined with art theft and an international conspiracy.
This book will be available soon. Make sure you read the first three books in the series first!

(From Ch 2:)
“I wanted to talk to you again about the money Paul left me, Declan.”
“And I’ve told you each time you bring it up, Nora, that I don’t need the gritty details. That money’s for you and Sean.”
“Yes, but surely you must have questions, and with this house hunting—”
“You’ve said it’s adequate to take the burden off you, and to buy a house alone.” Was this her way of asking if he wanted to live with her? “That’s all I need to know. It’s tough to be jealous of a dead man, Nora.” His thoughts tumbled over each other.
Did he really mean that? Was Nora really over Paul Pembroke? She’d told him it would never have worked with Paul, yet she’d recently developed a relationship with his parents. But then, they were her baby’s family, too. “I’m just glad it’s relieved your financial pressure,” he ended. At least that was a true statement.
“True British reticence,” she muttered, shaking her head.
