Publisher's Summary

From the award-winning author of the Nora Tierney English Mysteries comes the most chilling novel to date.
Nora Tierney can't shake the feeling she has a stalker. While she's house hunting in Oxford, her partner, DI Declan Barnes, untangles the murder of an art conservator. When these situations collide, she finds herself fighting to save her child and their future.


What the Critics Say

"One of the best things about Marni Graff's latest Nora Tierney mystery, The Golden Hour, is the down-to-earth depiction of family life coupled with the tightly paced build of a twisty, time-honored puzzle. A meditation on love, loss and motherhood, The Golden Hour blends touchingly real domesticity with tongue-in-cheek humor, as the backdrop to a tale of art theft, germ warfare, and international conspiracy. The reflections of a reprehensible villain on the shortcomings of the British add just the right note of comedy to these otherwise weighty concerns. Added to this is a wonderful sense of place - Bath, Brighton, and Oxford are vividly rendered and charmingly true to life. Come for the crackling mystery, stay for the steady companionship of debonair detective Declan Barnes and feisty heroine, Nora Tierney, who offers warmth and smarts in equal measure." (Ausma Zehanat Khan, Among the Ruins, The Unquiet Dead)

A Traditional English Mystery

Not my normal genre I usually read more hard/noir mysteries, But This was a really pleasant surprise!
A well crafted detective story, with well rounded characters and a superb plot with side plots all interwoven. Without sex, violence or bad language.

The suspense gathers momentum as the drama unfolds, and the plot is very well crafted, with characters who are engaging and very realistic. The relationship between the protagonist and her law enforcement officer seems to provide a constant as the unexpected difficulties unfold. The publisher's blurb gives hints and clues, and there is no need for spoilers. I couldn't put it down, but that is less of a problem with audio.
Nano Nagle performed beautifully as narrator.
