A Gripping New Historical Crime Series

Mercia Blakewood will never give in – read her continuing story in the Puritan paperback and Traitor hardback, both coming January 2018!


David Hingley is an exciting new historical crime writer whose debut novel Birthright was released in July 2016, the first in a fast-paced series relating the tale of Mercia Blakewood as she strives to find justice for herself and those around her. With an exceptional blend of fictional and real-life characters, the lively story is woven around the never-dull history of the time. Beginning in Restoration London, the drama soon moves to the frontiers of America, as Mercia finds that life in the New World is as dangerous as that in the Old.

The second novel in the series, Puritan, picks up the story in the wilds of New England, and is currently available as hardback and ebook with the paperback to come in January 2018. The third installment, Traitor, takes Mercia’s adventures to the heart of the King’s Court: it too will be published in January 2018, initially as hardback and ebook.

Birthright, Puritan and Traitor are published by Allison and Busby.
