Do you love a mystery, enjoy a chuckle? How about a little of both?
Ronald Rowntree lives a fairly mundane life. Not only does he manage The Jolly Jester Public House, he lives above it too. One morning, he is readying himself for another ordinary day when his assistant, Sam, interrupts his breakfast, ranting about a corpse he’s just found in the saloon bar.
A little put out by this unexpected turn of events, Ronald takes a look, but soon finds himself the chief suspect in a particularly gruesome murder. With the police seemingly convinced of his guilt, Ronald is forced to investigate the murder himself, and that is where the problems start.
Faced with a crime that no one, apart from him, could have committed, or had reason to, let alone the opportunity, he struggles to make headway. He does, however, find out that all is not what it seems in the Village of Duckley. Certainly not Adam Gosling, the owner of The Jolly Jester, or his wife, Abby. Fred Arkwright of Arkwright’s Chest Emporium is not to be trusted, and nor is Trudy Lane, landlady of The Dog and Duck.
Drawn into the murky underworld of drink, drugs and lust-filled affairs, Ronald finds allies where he least expects them as he attempts to clear his name.
Can you solve the mystery before Ronald does? Will you find out…

From South East London, enjoyment is the key to my writing. If I’m loving writing the story, enjoying the characters, then I’ll carry on with that project. Multi Genre is the way my books will develop over time. I intend to write in differing ones dependant on what takes my fancy. For clarity, this will be clearly signposted. Pop by my web site, hook up on Facebook, tweet me on Twitter, or just send me an email, I’ll enjoy hearing from you. In the meantime, try one book, try them all, the theme is set in the look inside, the characters waiting to meet you, and most important, read for fun, read for the escape, and read to make it all worthwhile.
