The Cross of Ramplet – The Mystery of Throckmorton Manor is a mystery adventure novel set within the parameters of a treasure hunt filled with suspense and set around the infamous Throckmorton family against the romantic backdrop of Regency England. The novel features a truly diverse and intriguing cast of characters who are prepared to do anything in their quest to possess the Knights Templar fabled religious icon treasure – the Cross of Ramplet.

An historical novel set in Regency England around the sleepy village of Portsur, this page turning parody mystery adventure book hurtles along like a runaway freight train. It combines the elegance of a Regency England Jane Austin romance with the cunning treasure hunt mystery style of Agatha Christie and the broad comedic style of Mel Brooks - equating to a serious parody of the more traditional mystery adventure novel. The mood swings from hysterically ridiculous, to soft romantic overtures, often becoming deadly serious while maintaining the suspense of a ‘who done it’ treasure hunt that keeps the reader guessing right until the final four chapter climax filled with glorious fun.
