Conspiracy, mystery and a courageous suffragette with an eye for adventure - a sparkling debut novel from Jacquelyn Benson
Award-nominated playwright Jacquelyn Benson always wanted to grow up to be Indiana Jones, but since real archaeology involves cataloguing pot shards and digging through muck rather than diving out of planes and battling Nazis, she is devoted to shamelessly making things up instead.
After studying anthropology in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Jacquleyn is now married and living in Dublin, New Hampshire. When not writing, you may find her turning flowers into wine, herding her unruly offspring, or hiding under a blanket devouring genre fiction. THE SMOKE HUNTER is her debut novel.
