Terry Bell Mysteries #1
Introducing a brand new murder mystery series set on England’s northeast coast.
When taxi driver Frank is found dead on his dining room table, ex-cabbie Terry Bell assumes his old friend died of a heart attack. But when Terry’s former boss also turns up with his face bashed in, it starts to look like there’s a connection.
Faced with a Detective Inspector who doesn’t like coincidences, and a series of threatening letters, Terry does a bit of investigating of his own, but when another body is discovered, the temperature starts to rise – in more ways than one.
It’s a seaside town like any other seaside town: from the non-existent sand dunes and candy-striped deck chairs to the concrete piers and tacky market stalls, they’ve got it all – including dead bodies, arson attacks and hockey-stick wielding murderers.
If you love mysteries and amateur sleuthing, bald-headed villains and Swedish construction bosses, this’ll be right up your everyday seaside-town street.
What Readers Say
“This is a story that you will want to read to the end. You’ll never suspect the twist. Thumbs up to Colin Garrow to come up with such a witty, funny cabbie-turned-sleuth. I imagine plenty of interesting stories to follow and I can’t wait to read them. ” – Jackie D.
“A Tyneside Mystery
The novel’s strength is Terry’s first-person narrative which manages to sound hard-boiled and vulnerable, wise-cracking and suspenseful, all at the same time. More like this, please.” – Art Kavanagh
