A Murder Mystery at Armagh Observatory

It is 1823 and the director of the Armagh Observatory, Rev William Davenport, has sadly passed away. Interim director Hamilton Spencer is excited by a piece of good fortune that has landed in his lap. A meteorite has struck in the Observatory’s grounds and it may be the boost the interim director needs to secure his position. But all is not well and there are those who wish Hamilton Spencer gone. Scandal, jealousy, anger and revenge are thick in the air and murder is just around the corner.
