Love Miss Marple? Adore Holmes and Watson? Professor Morley's guide to Norfolk is a story of bygone England; quaint villages, eccentric locals - and murder!
It is 1937 and disillusioned Spanish Civil War veteran Stephen Sefton is stony broke.
So when he sees a mysterious advertisement for a job where 'intelligence is essential', he applies.
Thus begins Sefton's association with Professor Swanton Morley, an omnivorous intellect.
Morley's latest project is a history of traditional England, with a guide to every county.
They start in Norfolk, but when the vicar of Blakeney is found hanging from his church's bellrope, Morley and Sefton find themselves drawn into a rather more fiendish plot.
Did the Reverend really take his own life, or was it - murder?
Beginning a thrilling new detective series, 'The Norfolk Mystery' is the first of The County Guides.
A must-read for fans of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Agatha Christie, every county is a crime scene and no-one is above suspicion!
