March 2017 Debut of the Month.
A snappy, vibrant, romp of a read, set in a 1950’s Devonshire seaside town. Miss Judy Dimont (in her forties), the shrewd and very able journalist for The Riviera Express, investigates the suspicious deaths of two men. The author T. P. Fielden is a journalist, and has set an according tone, it almost feels as though there is a narrator, perhaps the newspaper itself, as pithy observations fly across the page. Information is gradually revealed, though there is enough left unsaid about Judy, to leave me wanting more, good thing this is the start of a new series! With interesting town folk and silver screen stars, there was plenty to occupy my thoughts as I attempted to solve this intruiging whodunit. ‘The Riviera Express’, with a thoroughly modern heroine, is an entertaining, spirited, murder mystery set in a bygone era. ~ Liz Robinson
Murder on the Riviera Express Gerald Hennessey - silver screen star and much-loved heart-throb - never quite makes it to Temple Regis, the quaint Devonshire seaside town on the English Riviera. Murdered on the 4.30 from Paddington, the loss of this great man throws Temple Regis' community into disarray. Not least Miss Judy Dimont -corkscrew-haired reporter for the local rag, The Riviera Express. Investigating Gerald's death, she's soon called to the scene of a second murder, and, setting off on her trusty moped, Herbert, finds Arthur Shrimsley in an apparent suicide on the clifftops above the town beach. Miss Dimont must prevail - for why was a man like Gerald coming to Temple Regis anyway? What is the connection between him and Arthur? And just how will she get any answers whilst under the watchful and mocking eyes of her infamously cantankerous Editor, Rudyard Rhys?
