INSPECTOR KNOWLES IS BACK The third book in the Inspector Knowles series sees Knowles and Sergeant Barnes investigating why the wrong person died on a murder/mystery excursion on a steam train.

The Manton Rempville Mystery – start of Chapter 1

Detective Sergeant Rod Barnes surveyed the remains of Manton Rempville monastery with incredulity. He’d heard that a hundred thousand pounds had been spent on preserving the ruins and he couldn’t understand why anyone would do such a thing. Ruins were ruins for a reason. The natural order of things, in Barnes’ mind at least, wasContinue reading “The Manton Rempville Mystery – start of Chapter 1”

Julian Worker – New Book

Another day in the life of Detective Inspector Colin Knowles another murder. Bingo the retriever has been finding bodies again.

The Manton Rempville Mystery – Chapter 4

Colin Knowles was lying on a beach in the Caribbean. He was drinking a mojito and soaking up the rays of the sun, while secretly admiring some of the local females. Slowly the eloquent cawing of the parrots in the trees turned into the ringing of his phone and intruded into his dream. Knowles triedContinue reading “The Manton Rempville Mystery – Chapter 4”

The Manton Rempville Mystery – Chapter 2

Barnes drove down the carefully manicured driveway of Manton Rempville Hall, while Knowles stared at the yew hedges, which had been sheared into interesting shapes that he couldn’t quite recognise.

Goat Parva Murders – Chapter 4

Knowles parked his Land Rover in the car park of the Badger & Ferret Inn and looked at his watch. “Right, Sergeant Barnes, I think you should go and see Carol Herald and find out what she knows and work out what she’s not telling you, if you know what I mean. Above all seeContinue reading “Goat Parva Murders – Chapter 4”

Goat Parva Murders – Another extract

This is another extract from my book The Goat Parva Murders: An Inspector Knowles Mystery. Suddenly Bingo barked and ran off into the undergrowth with his tail wagging vigorously. Mrs Hills turned around and shouted. “He’s found something I just know it – I wonder who it will be this time.” Linda Smythe walked overContinue reading “Goat Parva Murders – Another extract”

The Goat Parva Murders – An Inspector Knowles Mystery – Beginning of Chapter 2

Knowles decided that he and Barnes should arrive at Mrs Hills’ house in his Land Rover but that Mrs Danica Baker-Clements would be more impressed by Barnes’ Morgan. They drove to Scoresby station, dropped off the Morgan and then chugged over to the Hills’ house imaginatively called The Cottage. After they knocked on the doorContinue reading “The Goat Parva Murders – An Inspector Knowles Mystery – Beginning of Chapter 2”

The Goat Parva Murders: An Inspector Knowles Mystery

This is the blurb for my latest book: Just a typical Tuesday night in the English country hamlet of Goat Parva. The stalkers in the rhododendrons are busy watching the exhibitionists in the windows. Nothing unusual. Until that is when Bingo the retriever returns with a pair of shoes that were last seen adorning the feetContinue reading “The Goat Parva Murders: An Inspector Knowles Mystery”
