The Detectives
DI GILBERT (“GIL”) MARKHAM
DI Markham is a startlingly talented detective rising through the ranks of Bromgrove CID. He is distant and austere — the product of a profoundly difficult childhood — but has a natural magnetism which inspires loyalty. He clashes with his slippery boss, DCI Sidney, who prioritizes the force’s public image.

DS GEORGE (“NOAKESY”) NOAKES
DS Noakes is a slobbish, uncouth and outspoken Yorkshireman, an object of despair to his superiors. He is, however, also a man of hidden depths, with a sensitive streak and a secret flair for ballroom dancing. Markham sees through his philistinism and they form an unstoppable partnership.

Detective Mike Nash thought that moving back to Yorkshire from London would give him a quieter life. Little did he know . . .

FRAUD, MURDER AND MAYHEM
Dean Wilson’s sister Linda vanished four years ago, around the same time as millions of pounds of investors' money disappeared from the company she worked for.

IS SHE DEAD AND GONE?

Then Dean is charged with assault in a nightclub and Detective Mike Nash's enquiries cause him to reopen the fraud case. Dean is in love with a woman whose family were some of the biggest losers from the company’s collapse.

Events quickly begin to escalate, and soon Nash has several murder investigations on his hands.

Meanwhile Helmsdale police are being swamped with complaints about email scams. Nash needs help. Computer analyst, Tina Silver, is brought in to help.

With the body count rising and forensic resources stretched, Nash realizes he may be dealing with fraud of larger proportions than he ever could have imagined.

Can Nash and his team solve the case before any more lives are taken?

A BREATH-TAKING CRIME THRILLER PERFECT FOR FANS OF IAN RANKIN, JD KIRK, DS BUTLER or PETER ROBINSON.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT DEAD & GONE

“Another great book with twists and plenty of dead bodies.” Una

“Excellent story. Gripping and compelling. Couldn't put it down!” Bruce

“One of the best authors I have come across recently.” Dobby

MIKE NASH
A highly talented detective, he was a rising star in the Metropolitan Police. Following a particularly gruesome case involving a sadistic serial killer, Nash turns down the chance of promotion and heads back to his native county of Yorkshire. He hopes that returning to his roots will bring peace of mind. However, although the pace of life seems gentler, the crimes prove no less horrific. His skills are tested to the limit by a series of violent crimes that threaten to ruin his plans for a more relaxed lifestyle. Nor is his secret ambition to settle down made any easier by his one weakness, a seemingly unquenchable thirst for female company. That is, until . . .?

LOCATION
The books are set in a fictional rural North Yorkshire with a scattering of market towns, many small villages and countryside that changes from high moorland with dramatic crags, mountain tarns and sparse vegetation, to the gentler, lush agricultural land lower down the valley that is bisected by the river Helm. The town of Helmsdale is where Mike Nash and his team are based, in a sub-division of their headquarters in the larger town of Netherdale. Further to the west is Bishopton, also part of the hub our detectives cover.

Three murders with a sinister connection lead Detective David Mallory and criminal profiler Hannah Nightingale on a very dark trail.

An evil serial killer is brutally slaying religious leaders?
A rabbi is found murdered. Someone has carved a religious symbol into his flesh and driven a lance through his heart. The way the killing is staged leaves criminal profiler Dr Hannah Nightingale certain that a fanatic is on the loose. More religious leaders are coming to town for a high-profile conference, so Nightingale and Detective David Mallory and DCI Gary Falcon face a nightmare situation. One by one, more religious leaders will die in bizarre and disturbing ways. Is the killer on a mission to attack all faiths and to promote dark and devilish forces?

BOOK 4: VENGEANCE
Criminal profiler Dr Hannah Nightingale is found drugged and tied naked to a fountain in the city centre . . .

DISCOVER YOUR NEXT FAVOURITE SERIES. MEET BRITAIN’S BEST-LOVED VILLAGE POLICEMAN.

It’s original, it’s funny…one of life’s little pleasures.” Yorkshire Post

THE BOOKS WHICH INSPIRED HEARTBEAT

The brilliantly entertaining and heartwarming books behind the hit 90s TV series “Heartbeat”. One of the top ten most watched shows of the decade.

THERE’S A CRIME WAVE IN THE VILLAGE
“If we suffered three crimes in the district during a month, the local papers described it as a crime wave. These waves were very tiny, therefore, more like ripples on a village pond than the kind of waves that swamp ocean liners.”

A hay barn is set on fire at Low Dale Farm. It seems that an arsonist is targeting isolated barns.

Arnold Merryweather's ancient bus helps catch a car thief.

And when Nick arrests not only a pig thief but also the expectant pig, the police station cleaner is not very pleased.

But it's not all crime. A glider crashes into a romance in a thatched cottage and then Constable Nick is involved in a plot to force a penny-pincher to spend money.

Stories of a constable on his village beat in North Yorkshire. All very gentle and far, far removed from the hurly burly of modern day city policing.” Daily Telegraph

In the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside of the 1960s, Constable Nick's roles are as varied as the eccentric villagers.

Perfect for fans of James Herriot, TE Kinsey, Gerald Durrell, J. R. Ellis or anyone who loves a great read.

MEET CONSTABLE NICK AND HIS COLLEAGUES
Police Constable Nick Rhea has been posted to the country with his wife Mary and their three small children. They move into the police house, high on a ridge overlooking the moors. It sits on the edge of the village of Aidensfield — “probably the most beautiful site in the country”.

Sergeant Oscar Blaketon. A good, solid and dependable character who runs his little police station with fierce efficiency but under a tough exterior, is full of warmth, generosity and kindness

PC Alf Ventress. The old, easy-going constable whose local knowledge is vital to the running of Ashfordly Police Station. He does like Mrs Ventress's hard-boiled eggs!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT NICHOLAS RHEA

Just love Nicholas Rhea's Constable books... easy reading delivers a heart-warming, amusing trip back to a very different kind of policing in the '60s.” Joy Ellis

“Recommended if it's laughter you're after.” Bolton Evening News

“Richly entertaining.” Yorkshire Evening Post

Splendid reading.” Police Journal

“To be really blunt, this is not my normal reading fare, but I loved it.” Nancy

“I enjoyed this tremendously.” Melissa

“A wonderful and relaxing dip into the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors.” David

“A highly entertaining book which anyone who is looking for easy and humorous reading will enjoy.” Granny

IN THE AUTHOR’S OWN WORDS
“As I had served as a village constable in a delightful part of the North York Moors, it seemed logical to use that experience as a background to the stories, and to add a touch of humour which is always present in police work.”

New release on Kindle. THE SUITCASE MURDERER, a historical whodunnit by James Andrew.


Just 99p/99c for launch. FREE with KU!


When a shop worker is reported missing, the circumstances lead Inspector Blades to launch a murder investigation.

A man with ‘strange eyes’, struggling with two suitcases, is seen leaving the building where the young woman, Emma Simpson, lived. There is a stain on the drawing room floor. It could be spilled wine, but Inspector Blades fears the worst.

The woman’s ex-lover is brought in for questioning. He is certainly suspicious. And he has a motive. But solving a crime is never that easy.

Indeed, why did Emma’s employer pack up and leave the town? And why does a local newspaper reporter seem to be one step ahead of the police? Where is he getting his information from, and did he play a part in the crime?

The police will have to put the jigsaw together. Crucial will be finding the body. But they are missing certain other pieces – clues that only a wily and motivated detective will be able to discover.

THE SUITCASE MURDERER takes us back 100 years to a Britain slowly recovering from the First World War. A place full of damaged, out of work men, desperate and with little else to lose. Yet also one in which women are beginning to stand up for themselves and demand equal treatment.

This book is a standalone in a series of four whodunnits featuring DI Stephen Blades – a straight-talking copper who has his own doubts about his role in the war.

The full list of books, available FREE with Kindle Unlimited and in paperback, is as follows:

1.THE BODY UNDER THE SANDS
2.DEATH WAITS FOR NO LADY
3.THE RIDDLE OF THE DUNES
4.THE SUITCASE MURDERER

If you like a good mystery that keeps you guessing, you’ll love this book!

Millionaire film writer Peter Santana’s body is found in a lonely Pennine farmhouse where he hid himself away to write.

Detective Angel is shocked to find a dead pig in a silk nightdress in Santana’s bed. The victim’s beautiful actress wife is more concerned about the pig than the loss of her husband.

Angel’s further investigations become more mystifying and dangerous as he notices that wherever he makes even an inquiry there’s a cuckoo clock on the wall.

The DI and his team race to solve the murder, prevent more mayhem, and unravel the mystery of the cuckoo clocks.

A BRILLIANTLY GRIPPING MYSTERY FULL OF TWISTS

Perfect for fans of R.D. Wingfield, Colin Dexter, Peter Robinson, Reginald Hill, and Agatha Christie.

THE DETECTIVE
Michael Angel is over fifty, married to Mary. They don’t have any children. They are a devoted couple but the relationship sometimes breaks down due to his job or due to the problems of Mary’s sister who lives in Edinburgh and imposes on their easygoing natures. Michael works at the small local police station and is devoted to defeating crime, murder, and dishonesty of any sort and has no personal ambition beyond being a good husband and a successful detective. He doesn’t want promotion with all the routine office work and stress that goes with it. He is incorruptible but always short of money. He is always at odds with his immediate chief, Detective Superintendent Horace Harker, who is lazy, a hypochondriac and not a bit interested in assisting Angel in serious police work.

THE SETTING
Bromersley is a market town at the bottom of the Pennines surrounded by stone and hawthorn-edged fields grazed by cattle and sheep. It is cold as anywhere in the winter but its closeness to the mountains protects it from many gales and heavy falls of snow. The town’s industry today includes the manufacture of ball bearings and whisky bottles, and a huge brewery produces Bromersley’s best bitter, which is considered the finest beer for miles around. Wednesday is market day, and the town centre is host to the frequent cries of stall-holders hawking their wares while the enticing smells of cheeses, coffees, foreign spices and fish and chips tempt your taste buds as you wander through the stalls. The police always find it difficult to catch pilferers and pickpockets in such a crowd. Bromersley folk are easy to befriend but many of the old people are stubborn and still buy their fruit and veg in pounds and ounces, not kilos and grams.

PRAISE FOR ROGER SILVERWOOD

“Solid plotting, unpretentious writing, thoroughly reliable entertainment.” Morning Star

“A cast of characters you really want to populate with familiar faces of actors you see each week on TV — great fun. Angel is terrific.” Books Monthly
