Death on Tyneside (Agnes Lockwood Mysteries Book 2) by Eileen Thornton is an irresistible sleuth murder mystery set on the banks of the River Tyne in Newcastle, England.
With memorable characters and an intriguing plot, the story is composed in a competent and entertaining style, which captures and maintains the reader’s interest from start to finish.
The protagonist, Agnes Lockwood, is a fan of Agatha Christie, and as such, does a superb job following in the footsteps of the great writer’s famous character, Miss Marple.
Like her heroine, Agnes uses her keen sense of awareness and observations to answer the age-old question of “whodunit?” This is a delightful murder mystery and if you are a fan of Ms. Christie, you will not be able to resist this riveting novel!
Agnes Lockwood has required sleuthing skills abroad. She is eager to hook up with DCI, Alan Johnson—Newcastle police again, but Alan’s tolerance is almost run out with Agnes when she gets herself tangled in another homicide.
This tale is a collection of mystery, intrigue, suspense, and it will have you scratching your head at the twist and turns…always a sign of a great author. I was entertained throughout. Award-winning author, Eileen Thornton has strong intellect and mindfulness in her well thought out plot’s…this story and the 1st one in the series: Murder on Tyneside (Agnes Lockwood Mysteries Book 1); a must read first.
This series is a charming and thrilling murder-mystery.

This is the author’s second iteration of the Agnes Lockwood mysteries. In this book, she returns from a visit to Australia where she spent time with her sons only to become embroiled in another murder mystery.
Two bodies have surfaced and Agnes is the subject of a scam trying to take her business away from her. I will tell you no more. If you wish more you must read this wonderful book.
Eileen Thornton is a consummate English Storyteller. She weaves a tale of murder and intrigue as though knitting a sweater.
Each stroke of her computer keys creates a wonderful, believable character, or a scenario resulting in foul play. Her books are always immaculate and well presented. The story she tells is always filled with unanticipated twists and turns, some you never discover until the last few pages, if then.
Read this book. It is well worth the time and the money.
