MISS CHRISTIE REGRETS

GUY FRASER-SAMPSON

The sequel to the bestselling Death in Profile has been praised by fellow authors and readers alike - a truly original crime story, speaking to a contemporary audience yet harking back to the Golden Age of detective fiction

T PUB DATE: 12 January 2017 ISBN: 9781911331803 PRICE: £7.99 EXTENT: 368 Pages DIMENSIONS: B format paperback BIC: FF, FFC, FFH CATEGORY: Classic crime/mystery

he second in the Hampstead Murders series opens with a sudden death at an iconic local venue, which some of the team believe may be a connected with an unsolved murder featuring Cold War betrayals worthy of George Smiley. It soon emerges that none other than Agatha Christie herself may be the key witness who is able to provide the missing link. As with its predecessor, Death in Profile, the book develops the lives nd loves of the team at ‘Hampstead Nick’. While the next phase

of a complicated love triangle plays itself out, the protagonists, struggling to crack not one but two apparently insoluble murders, face issues of national security in working alongside Special Branch. As the ending hints, has the full story really been told? On one level a classic whodunit, this quirky and intelligent read harks back not only to the world of Agatha Christie, but also to the Cold War thrillers of John Le Carré, making it a worthy successor to Death in Profile which was dubbed ‘a love letter to the detective novel.’

5-year-old Barry wakes up one day to find that his body is covered in strange, metallic lumps. Living nine miles from Sellafield nuclear plant could be an explanation for this, but, actually, something more uncanny is going on. The evening before, a girl from Barry’s school, Philomena May, was brutally attacked and left in a ditch to die. Philomena’s ghost visits Barry and guides them both into the future, where Barry and the ghost girl’s purpose is to prevent the real-life

multiple shootings carried out in the same town by rampaging taxi driver Derrick Bird. The book flicks between 1976 and 2010, and explores the effect of horrendous crimes on small communities and the way the gradual accretion of small grudges can drive a person to mass murder. Readers are calling the book a thrilling mash-up of Edward Scissorhands, In Cold Blood, and Back To The Future. ‘A ruthless eye and pitchblack humour.’ The Observer

A

haunting message scrawled on the dressing room wall of a theatre: the scene of a murder. It had been written using the blood from the victim, previously drained in a separate location. At the autopsy, DI Gardener and DS Reilly are shown a riddle carved into the chest of the corpse, informing them there would be more. Their efforts to find out why are continually blocked by a wall of contradiction, with little in the way of evidence to support their cause. Steered back to the scene of the crime and a disused prop room, Gardener and his

trusted sergeant find another puzzle. The murderer - it seems - is playing games. It soon becomes clear to Gardener and Reilly that to find the killer they need to solve the clues, and to do that, they must tunnel their way into the past, where the streets were paved with gold, and to a man who had terrified people before either of them had even been born…. ‘Excellent read, held you in suspense until the end.

j

ohn is an actor. He is a man. A man who wants. A man who needs. A man who takes. And he takes from those who always expect him to give. To give them love, loyalty, affection – to give them his soul, his loyalty, his life. Why can’t they just let him thrive? Why can’t they understand the desires and passions that drive him? Why is he a man alone? John has crossed the line from performance to reality, from stage to street, from imagination to visceral breath – and he needs to wrest control before all is lost.

Themes that haunt the Berkoff canon are present in this startling novel, from his use of crude street patter to discussion of sex wars; class wars; dislocation and abandonment of love in a thankless and unyielding world. This is a challenging, brutally honest novel that will inspire, enrage and divide – and live on long after the final word. Sod the *******! is testament to the power of words. It will shock, amaze, inspire and horrify. This is a book for the brave – a novel to expand your mind and challenge your moral compass and beliefs.

CI Jack (nicknamed Jane) Austin is said to have never solved a crime in his life; an elderly, ugly and half blind cockney barrow boy who barrels through life on a wing and a prayer. On an incident filled honeymoon in France with his new wife, Detective Superintendent Amanda Bruce, he receives a Papal Blessing, as well as incongruously diverse messages from French Intelligence, Mossad and the CIA. A Napoleon coastal fort in Portsmouth is taken over by seedy football hooligans, a French Banker is assassinated on the streets of Paris, and a

fat hotelier, missing for three months, is found ragged and skinny on an Eastney beach. Jack Austin thinks he knows what links all these events, and under the guise of knowing what he is doing, he probes further; what could possibly go wrong? ‘Really is a breath of fresh air in what can often be a fairly staid area of the literary marketplace.’ John Anthony With a writing style inspired and shaped by his formative years on an estate that re-housed London families after WWII, Pete Adam’s Kind Hearts and Martinets series of books have been likened to the writing of Tom Sharpe.
