The Books

Below is a list of my crime novels and those of Harriet Hudson.  Some that are no longer available from the original publishers can often be sourced through or through other formats, large print, audio, and increasingly ebook format.


Classic Cashes In
Crime in the fast lane, starring Jack Colby, car detective

Buying a classic Packard saloon from the 1930s on behalf of a client should have been routine for Jack Colby, but this Packard is special ….

And as Jack struggles to piece together the car’s exciting history and the mystery surrounding it, he is soon precipitated into a dangerous world where nothing is as it seems.

Murder in Abbot’s Folly
Amy Myers

Curiosity about a murder that took place in an eighteenth-century folly draws father and daughter team Peter and Georgia Marsh to attend a summer gala in honour of Jane Austen at Stourdens, a fast decaying Georgian mansion in Kent. But instead of enjoying a literary day out, they are thrust into a tense situation rapidly approaching boiling point. In the search for the truth about the earlier murder, Georgia is pitchforked into danger as it once again strikes at Stourdens.

‘An enjoyable read: historical interest, multiple suspects and a pair of likable sleuths.’ – Kirkus Reviews
