When playboy Max Jeopard is killed at his own engagement party, Inspector Luke Thanet is called in to investigate and uncovers a host of suspects, including his fiancée, a jealous brother, an ex-girlfriend, and the victim’s future in-laws. “This English village ‘cozy’ goes down well” (Library Journal). “A master at plot manipulation, Ms. Simpson cunningly strews clues right and left…The pleasure here is watching Thanet meticulously pick his way through ‘the complex web of relationships’ to arrive at an understanding of what would make a person kill for love.” —The New York Times Book Review
In the fourteenth novel in the British mystery series from the Silver Dagger award-winning author Dorothy Simpson, “a modern-day version of Agatha Christie” (Booklist), Inspector Luke Thanet has a both murder and a wedding on his hands. Newspaper reporter Jessica Manifest’s questionable death takes Inspector Luke Thanet away from his daughter’s wedding preparations to investigate the victim’s supposedly accidental death. As he delves into her secretive past, he realizes that there are many people with motives for murdering her. “Thanet's investigation proceeds with satisfying depth…Simpson tailors her plot with skill and care, nicely dovetailing all the clues and reserving a special twist for the end” (Library Journal).
A compelling British police procedural starring the mild-mannered Detective Inspector Thanet from “a modern-day version of Agatha Christie” (Booklist). Change is coming to the Sturrenden police station. After twenty years at the helm, the superintendent has retired, and Det. Inspector Luke Thanet is now reporting to a brusque, ambitious upstart recently promoted from Cardiff. A new chief means turf wars and bureaucratic infighting. With the station in chaos, Thanet is almost happy to investigate a suspicious death. The political side of detective work is what keeps Thanet from seeking promotion. He would rather be risking his neck in the field, and he’s one of the best at his job. When powerful businesswoman Marcia Salden is found dead in the River Sture and the autopsy suggests foul play, Thanet descends on the village of Telford Green, where a tangled web of conspiracy rewarded Marcia’s ambition with murder. The award-winning Detective Inspector Thanet series about one of the best-loved English policemen is perfect for fans of P. D. James and Midsomer Murders. Suspicious Death is the 8th book in the Inspector Thanet Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

Die Knochen sind alt, das ist der forensischen Archäologin Ruth Galloway sofort klar. Das Mädchen hingegen konnte noch nicht so alt gewesen sein. Wie sie zu Tode gekommen ist, kann Ruth nicht mehr ermitteln, aber die Faserreste an ihren Handgelenken lassen vermuten, dass sie gefesselt und der Flut ausgesetzt worden ist. Doch das war schon vor 2000 Jahren geschehen. Es hat nichts mit dem Fall der vermissten Lucy Downey zu tun. Oder? In den anonymen Briefen, die Detective Chief Inspector Harry Nelson von der Norfolk Police seit dem Verschwinden der Fünfjährigen bekommt, ist immer wieder vom Moor die Rede, von Opferungen und heidnischen Ritualen. Darum bittet Harry Ruth um ihre Mithilfe. Als kurz darauf ein weiteres Mädchen verschwindet, muss Ruth entdecken, dass sie den Täter besser kennt, als sie glaubt. Und er sie ...
A British detective must find the killer of a much-despised villager in this mystery from “a modern-day version of Agatha Christie” (Booklist). Det. Inspector Luke Thanet is brought in when a dead man is found in bed, apparently killed by a single blow with a blunt object. When the corpse is identified as Steven Long, the question is no longer who wanted to kill him, but who didn’t? A troublemaker with enemies wherever he went, Long was loathed by everyone in town, from his long-suffering ex-wife to the man whose family he killed in a driving accident. To find the culprit, Thanet will have to get to the bottom of a lifetime of hate. The long-running series featuring Detective Inspector Thanet, which includes The Night She Died and CWA Silver Dagger winner Last Seen Alive, is perfect for fans of P. D. James and classic police procedurals. Dead on Arrival is “an intriguing tale not to be missed” (Yorkshire Post). Dead on Arrival is the 6th book in the Inspector Thanet Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
