FREE DETECTIVE FICTION for Sherlock Holmes fans


THE STRANGE CASE OF ALBERT MITCHELL (detective mysteries) (Case One of The London Road Mysteries)

"I loved this rip roaring detective story. Great period details and strong characters. I read it in one sitting," Chris Child

"There's a lot of action. I could imagine this making an exciting TV series." Ann Abrams

"It's great for Sherlock Holmes fans. Peter Keeley brings Manchester in 1911 to vivid life." Steve Moore

A brilliant period detective mystery
Detective James Francis Dineen and his partner John Moreland hear a gunshot during a training exercise at the London Road police station. Running over, they find one of their colleagues is dead, with an unfired gun in his hand. It looks like a disguised murder, but with no witnesses and no motive the detectives must deploy all their skills to unpick the mystery. Soon there's another corpse, and a significant new clue. Their investigation takes them across Manchester as they go from shady pubs and opium dens to the Royal Exchange.

James Dineen is inspired by Sherlock Holmes, and tries unorthodox tactics that aren't taught in training school. He's from the same rough background as the criminals he pursues, so isn't afraid to bend the rules to solve a case. While John Moreland is a church-going family man, who plays by the book.

The Strange Case of Albert Mitchell is the first of Peter Keeley's London Road mysteries, stories from the casebook of James Francis Dineen. It will appeal to all fans of early 20th century detective fiction. Look out for further adventures on Amazon soon.
