The Fox’s Curse: Crow Investigations Book Three is OUT NOW!

Meep! I really enjoyed writing The Fox’s Curse and am thrilled with the response to it so far. Thank you!

It got a shiny orange bestseller flag and was listed as a ‘hot new release’ but, more importantly, I’ve heard from lots of Lydia Crow fans that it’s their favourite one so far.

One of the most daunting things about writing a series is the fear that I will let folk down, so I’m mightily relieved!

Here are some links to buy The Fox’s Curse (or to check out the first chapter for free):









A cursed Fox. A vengeful Silver. A whole lot of trouble…

Lydia Crow has long suspected there is more beneath London than just trains, but has never been keen to poke around in the dark. But when Paul Fox, powerful member of the Fox Family, blackmails her into taking a case, she has no choice.

Investigating a suspicious death in a disused tunnel of the London Underground for her ex-boyfriend causes friction between her and DCI Fleet – and not the fun kind.

Uncle Charlie is still pressuring her to work for the Family business, her ghostly flatmate is looking for answers about his own demise, and Maria Silver is out for blood. Preferably Lydia’s.

With old alliances broken, it’s harder for Lydia to know who to trust. There is a big choice up ahead and it’s getting closer by the second. Lydia has to find a path in the darkness – and fast.



‘I’m completely hooked on this series, and it just gets better and better. The Fox’s Curse is so much fun – gripping, romantic and wonderfully atmospheric, with a cast of delightfully engaging characters. I can’t get enough of it!’ Clodagh Murphy

‘All my favourite things together- mystery, crime, a sassy female PI and a Magical underworld going on right under Londoner’s noses.’ A.L. Michael

‘The Lydia Crow books are a firm favourite of mine, combining intriguing crime fiction with a hint of other-worldly mysticism. The characters are brilliantly drawn, and Sarah Painter cleverly makes them believable despite them having magical powers – or even being dead. With just enough comedy to make the dark bits even darker, and the perfect amount of mystery, these books are a wonderful read. I can’t wait for the next one!’  Kerry Barrett
