Goblin Fruit

Goblin Fruit

Addictive potions challenge even the best minds.

Lord Geoffrey Carillon is well-known as a pleasant and harmless sort of man.

On the surface, he's recovered from the Great War, taking his role as Lord of Ytene seriously when he's not seen at any number of house parties, concerts, and balls. When an inquiry agency needs his particular talents to help investigate a mysterious and highly addictive golden drink, he's happy to lend a hand.

Lizzie Penhallow wants the simple things.

Her sister's health and safety, enough food on the table, and enough income to pay the bills and keep their house in Cornwall. But after her uncle and father were lost on an expedition, she's had a difficult time getting anyone to hire her. This position with the agency is her last chance to find work she's actually good at. She has no time for distractions.

There's just one problem.

Lord Carillon has the access she needs to keep an eye on her sister and to help her new employer solve a complicated and deadly problem. She can work with that.  There's no choice. Even if it involves house parties around the British Isles, and some quite suggestive dancing.

Join Carillon and Lizzie in 1924 as they investigate the mysterious goldwasser drink in Goblin Fruit.
