Resort to Murder

by T. P. Fielden

Part of the A Miss Dimont Mystery Series

Crime / Mystery Historical Fiction Relationship Stories

LoveReading View on Resort to Murder

The second in the ‘Miss Dimont Mystery’ series lives up to expectations. Step back in time, to just after the Second World War, and travel to the English Riviera, a land of beautiful Devon beaches, beauty pageants, ghastly murder and beastly revenge. As soon as I got my hands on this book I dived in, as I wanted to know more about the fascinating reporter and crime solver Miss Dimont. Several stories are on the go and begin to weave together as the enigmatic Miss Dimont mentors a new trainee reporter. T. P. Fielden writes with a sparse, yet descriptive hand, a bygone era drifts from the pages. ‘Resort to Murder’ is an enjoyable, charming and readable tale, this is fast developing into a cracking new series.

Resort to Murder Synopsis

No 1 Ladies Detective Agency meets The Durrells in 1950s Devon

Death stalks the beaches of Devon

With its pale, aquamarine waters and golden sands, the shoreline at Temple Regis was a sight to behold. But when an unidentifiable body is found there one morning, the most beautiful beach in Devon is turned into a crime scene.

For Miss Dimont – ferocious defender of free speech, champion of the truth and ace newspaperwoman for The Riviera Express – this is a case of paramount interest, and the perfect introduction for her young new recruit Valentine Waterford. Even if their meddling is to the immense irritation of local copper Inspector Topham…

Soon Miss Dimont and Valentine are deep in investigation – why can nobody identify the body, and why does Topham suspect murder? And when a second death occurs, can the two possibly be connected?

Resort to Murder Press Reviews

Praise for T P Fielden:

'Peak comfort read has been achieved' Red

'One of the best in the genre' The Sun

'This is a fabulously satisfying addition to the canon of vintage crime. No wonder the author has already been signed up to produce more adventures starring the indefatigable Miss Dimont.' Daily Express

'Unashamedly cosy, with gentle humour and a pleasingly eccentric amateur sleuth, this solid old-fashioned whodunit is the first in what promises to be an entertaining series.' The Guardian

'Highly amusing' Evening Standard

'TP Fielden is a fabulous new voice and his dignified, clever heroine is a compelling new character. This delicious adventure is the first of a series and I can't wait for the next one.' Wendy Holden, Daily Mail

Must have. A golden age mystery.' Sunday Express

'Tremendous fun' The Independent
