When ex-lawyer, now interior designer, Lucia Steer accepts a job renovating a large London house, she has no idea she’ll discover the owner dead. Lucia is determined to unlock the secret of this closed room mystery, no matter the trouble she’ll inevitably land in.


When a relationship coach is found dead, apparently electrocuted by a coffee maker, civilian investigator Lucia Steer makes short work of a killer’s attempt to hide a murder. But finding out who was so ready to kill in cold blood will take some doing.

Sabina Manea

The author spent many years in commercial law and the academia before pursuing her passion for writing. She originally comes from Romania, but grew up in the South East of England and now lives in rural Nottinghamshire. Sabina has a witty and sophisticated contemporary take on the classic murder mystery format, and lovers of the genre will enjoy seeing many of its tropes deftly delivered in cold blood.
