THE POKER GAME MYSTERY
Crime reporter Colin Crampton discovers nightclub bouncer Steve Telford murdered. Colin can’t understand why five cards of a poker hand are laid out next to the body. As Colin, and his feisty Australian girlfriend Shirley Goldsmith, investigate, they become entangled with three former special forces soldiers who have motives to kill Telford. The tension ratchets higher when the life of a young girl is on the line. Colin is forced to go head-to-head in a poker game with sinister newspaper owner Quentin Pell to save her.
“Funny, clever and immensely readable.” – Northern Reader
THE BEACH PARTY MYSTERY
Brighton is about to host a beach party – with the world’s biggest name in rock music headlining the show. Then fraudster Claude Winterbottom is beaten to death. As Colin and Shirley investigate, they find there are too many suspects. Like loan shark Manfred Crouchpenny… hypocritical purity campaigner Jeremiah Puttock… and a mystery woman who hides behind the pseudonym Astraea. The climax explodes on a pirate radio ship moored off the British coast.
“Funny and smart… a superbly entertaining read.” – Tales Before Bedtime
THE WORLD CUP MYSTERY
It’s July 1966 – and England is football crazy as fans cheer their team on to win the World Cup. There are millions who’d kill for a ticket. Then café owner Sergio Parisi is murdered in his own kitchen – and his World Cup Final ticket is missing. As Colin Crampton, and Shirley, chase down the story, they find a link to the theft of the World Cup’s Jules Rimet trophy. And Colin has a race against time to prevent an even deadlier crime.
