    Of these, Letter From an Unknown Woman is superb. The page letter to the beloved is to be read only after the writer’s death. It starts along familiar, even slightly tedious lines. Kate Shackleton is a private investigator, a war widow and a woman of means, thanks to her adoption by a well-off family. Her assistant, Mr. Sykes, introduces her to Mr. Fitzpatrick, who wants to know what his wife, Deirdre, is doing while he’s at : Frances Brody. An Unknown Woman has been enjoying a very good run. Not only was its cover design recognised with awards from Book Expo America’s Indie Author Fringe and Book Viral, but it has been named as the overall winner of the Writing Magazine/David St John Thomas Charitable Trust Self-Published Book of the Year Award
