Book Synopsis

Cyanide and Poppies is the second book in an historical crime series featuring ex-Great War nurse Eleanor Jones.

The novel is set in Melbourne in 1923, at the time of the police strike and the spring racing carnival.

When Eleanor and Nicholas come across a murdered journalist at the offices of the Argus newspaper they find that rather too many people had good reason to want the man dead.  To get to the truth, Eleanor has to search through a complex web of personalities and events which build to a dangerous conclusion at the Melbourne Cup ball.
