Shot in Southwold
Published in hardback 2017 by Allison & Busby
Set in 1950s Suffolk, the novel is a sequel to A Southwold Mystery and features the same protagonists. This time it is not a lethal flower festival that embroils them, but the shooting of a film directed by Lady Fawcett’s aspiring son-in-law Bartholomew Hackle. The film is bizarre, as are the ensuing events – some of the shots not confined to the merely celluloid type. Political ambition, shady trading and hints of quirky sexual high jinks blend with murder, plunging Rosy & Co. into a scenario baffling to the police and distinctly compromising to themselves. Drama is heightened by the arrival of Lady Fawcett’s cheerful daughter and her rampant whippet.

"With characters straight from Agatha Christie, if not from P G Wodehouse, and a setting like the wonderful Southwold, this superb thriller has everything thrown into the mix - humour, murder, tension, drama... if pushed, I'd say it was more reminiscent of Dorothy L Sayers's Lord Peter Wimsey, and that's a compliment, of course. A wonderful read."
"An amusing read indeed!"
