WIVB’s Daytime Buffalo Interview … host Chelsea Lovell and author Robert Brighton discuss THE BUFFALO BUTCHER, Buffalo and The Avenging Angel Detective Agency Mysteries.

Don't Miss...Immerse yourself in the scandal and glamor of the Gilded Age with this murder mystery.

"...Setting this series apart from other historical mysteries is Brighton’s deft hand at capturing dishy lives of long ago, as his Ashwood residents gossip, scheme, preen, and love. There’s nothing genteel about this depiction, and the chatter, both elegant and earthy, has the feel of a great cocktail party..."

"...Time and place are fully realized in this murder story, making for a fascinating period piece..."

A Murder in Ashwood is a beautiful and engaging story written by a talented writer.

A Murder in Ashwood by Robert Brighton is the ultimate turn-of-the-century murder mystery. Five Stars.
