 Journey to Death: A Lucy Hall Mystery is the first installment in a new crime series starring a reluctant young detective tested to the very limits of her endurance. Leigh Russell takes the reader on an exhilarating adventure from the idyllic tropical beaches of Mahé into the island’s Dark Cloud Forest.

Lucy Hall arrives in the Seychelles determined to leave her worries, and her cheating ex, behind. Newly single and tagging along with her parents on their romantic break, Lucy promises herself the holiday of a lifetime in sun-soaked Mahé. Her father, having lived and worked on the island in the seventies, is keen to show her the paradise he once called home. But appearances can be deceiving and, as Lucy soon discovers, the island is hiding dark secrets that threaten to turn their dream holiday into a nightmare.

As the number of strange and violent incidents rises, it becomes clear to Lucy that someone on the island is out to get them. Could her father’s past hold the key that might save all of their lives? And will Lucy discover the truth before it’s too late?
