Story opens in September 1956 –– When a Texas oil heiress goes missing and bodies begin to fall it is up to newly-licensed P.I. Kristin Van Dijk and her cantankerous partner, Otis Millett, to confront dangerous Beaumont gangsters, prying Dallas cops, slick crooked lawyers, and a buxom waitress who smells like Evening in Paris. This is an anything-but-straightforward Baby Shark crime adventure that hits the ground running for its life from bullet-riddled page one to a hell-of-a-surprise climax you never saw coming.

the Vicar of Grantchester and Honorary Canon of Ely Cathedral, is a thirty-two
year old bachelor. Tall, with dark brown hair, eyes the colour of hazelnuts and
a reassuringly gentle manner, Sidney is an unconventional clergyman and can go
where the police cannot.
Grantchester Mysteries, Sidney, together with his roguish friend Inspector Horatio
‘Harry' Keating, must enquire into the suspect suicide of a Cambridge solicitor,
a scandalous jewellery theft at a New Year's Eve dinner party, the unexplained
death of a well-known jazz promoter and a shocking art forgery the disclosure
of which puts a close friend in danger. Sidney discovers that being a detective, like
being a clergyman, means that you are never off duty, but alongside the
mysteries he solves he manages to find time for a keen interest in cricket,
warm beer and hot jazz, and the works of Tolstoy and Shakespeare - as well as a curious
fondness for a German widow three years his junior.
With a whiff of
Agatha Christie and a touch of Midsomer Murders, The
Grantchester Mysteries introduces a wonderful new hero into the
world of detective fiction.
