What the readers are saying

Enjoyable and kept me guessing
“A jolly good read! A fallible lead character, a believable enough story and written in an easy to digest style that kept me guessing and engaged. This is the first book I’ve read by this author and it won’t be the last”
Amazon reader March 2018

If detective stories are your thing, this is a good read.
“I was able to ‘resonate’ with this as, due to my daughter living in Exeter, I know and was able to visualise many of the places mentioned. But you don’t need to know Exeter to enjoy this book and it’s the sort of book that you would want to re-read more than once. And you will be pleased to hear that there is a second book, ‘Death and the Good Son’ which is just as good. I am looking forward to reading the third offering when it appears.”
