The murder of Bryn Wallace draws American writer Nora Tierney, living in Oxford, into the investigation to clear her close friend Val Rogan, who has been wrongfully accused of Bryn's murder.
Nora quickly becomes embroiled in the case, much to the dismay of Detective Inspector Declan Barnes and the illustrator of Nora's children's books, Simon Ramsey.
The men's efforts to save Nora from herself become increasingly frantic as Nora is forced to use her wits and her wiles to prove Val's innocence. The first in a series of Nora Tierney mysteries, THE BLUE VIRGIN is a compelling story of love and intrigue. Nothing, Nora learns, is what it seems, and even the most innocent of choices can lead to murder and revenge.
