It might seem as though there could be precious few mysteries left in Dulwich for my single mum amateur sleuth, Beth Haldane, to solve – but luckily that’s not the case at all, as you’ll see in Revenge on the Rye.
Revenge on the Rye, the fifth book in my series, is out today and it’s a jolly tale of murder and mayhem among well-heeled types who should know better, set in the heart of south London. This time, there are some new elements thrown into the mix of yummy mummies, posh schools and middle class aspirations – Beth’s come up against old crimes before, but this one is from her own childhood. She’s also forced to get to grips with pet ownership and the vagaries of the art world.
Meanwhile, looming like a black cloud over everything she does, there is the ghastly prospect of her son, Ben’s make or break interview at Wyatt’s School. Will he get in? And will Beth make it to the interview, or will she be too caught up in everything else that’s going on?
And, crucially, will Beth’s relationship with brutally handsome Detective Inspector Harry York of the Metropolitan Police survive her finding another body and solving another case?
You can buy Revenge on the Rye (and the other four books in the series) from all good independent bookshops in Dulwich, from WHSmith’s in Lewisham and from Waterstones in Blackheath Village, or simply order the paperback or Kindle versions from Amazon, by clicking here.
