Synopsis

The Riviera Express by T. P. Fielden

`A delicious adventure' - Daily Mail 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?

Reviews

`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
