Love Miss Marple? Adore Holmes and Watson? Professor Morleys 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 Seftons association with Professor Swanton Morley, an omnivorous intellect. Morleys 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 churchs 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!

Praise for The Norfolk Mystery: A delightful, idiosyncratic mystery set in the Thirties There is a touch of Sherlock Holmes and a dash of Lord Peter Wimsey, but the total is put together with a charm that is teasingly precious Beautifully crafted by Sansom, Professor Morely promises to become a little gem of English crime writing; sample him now Daily Mail Sansom is both celebrating and sending up the golden age of detective novels when, in the 1930s, Dorothy L Sayers and Agatha Christie were the queens of crime A brilliant first outing that leaves you looking forward to the next maniacal mystery tour Mark Sanderson, Evening Standard
