Strowan Westwood

Lady Strowan Westwood was once a famously beautiful actress and theatre star. The years have not been unkind to her, individually, but there have been a great many of them. Now, although she still retains a few vestiges of her former beauty, she is a tiny, wrinkled and rather crippled female. And also very rich.

Through her servant Tibbermore, Westwood engages Findo Gask to investigate the disappearance of her granddaughter with a precious and magical item of jewellery.

One of the cast of characters from the Findo Gask series of hard-boiled fantasy detective novels by Trevor Hopkins.
