The Midthorpe Mysteries

There are currently two Midthorpe novels with more in the pipeline.

Fiagara Nights


When successful novelist, Raymond Baldock returns to Midthorpe, the scum council estate where he was born and brought up, it is with the intention of wielding his wealth and influence over everyone for the few days that he is there. But he has reckoned without Lisa, the love of his former life or the way his car wheels keep disappearing. When he learns that his demure, divorced mother is carrying on a rampant affair about which she is painfully frank, and that she has been arrested for poisoning her boyfriend, he cannot contemplate leaving Midthorpe until he has sorted the mess out and got his wheels back.

Comic mayhem and murderous mystery in the first of the Midthorpe novels.

Available from Amazon UK and Amazon Worldwide


Bumped Off in Benidorm


Raymond Baldock hates Benidorm. So why is there? Because he has been pressured into going, and when he gets there, it lives down to his worst expectations.

His laptop is stolen, his mother is there, attending a hen weekend, and he finds her in a compromising situation. He is humiliated in a bar, then blackmailed, and as if that is not enough, he has to face the determined wrath of Lisa, the woman he stormed away from in the spring. And this is all before a body turns up, leaving him as one of the prime suspects in the death of the person Bumped Off in Benidorm.

Another dose of comic mayhem and mystery from Midthorpe.
