Exit Stage Left (Book 1)

Charlie Sparks brought a whole new meaning to dying on stage…

Charlie Sparks had it all. A former primetime television personality, his outdated style has seen him relegated to the scrapheap.

As Hardwick begins to unravel the mystery, he quickly comes to realise that Charlie Sparks’s death throws up more peculiar questions than answers.

The Westerlea House Mystery (Book 2)

Oscar Whitehouse foretold his own death on live TV. Hours later, he’s found dead in a locked room. But who killed him?

When TV psychic Oscar Whitehouse is found murdered inside a locked room, private detective Kempston Hardwick and his friend Ellis Flint are called in to investigate.

Within a matter of days, a second murder takes place in the small village of Tollinghill and a local resident claims she saw the already-dead Oscar Whitehouse at the scene, apparently alive and well. Hardwick and Flint realise they have more than just a conventional mystery in the village. Can they uncover the secret of the Tollinghill murders, before it’s too late?

Death Under the Sun (Book 3)

Holidays can be murder…

Sun, sea, sand and murder. How do you find a killer amongst a group of holidaymakers with their own hidden agendas and sordid backgrounds?

After solving two particularly tricky murder cases, Kempston Hardwick needs a holiday. At least that’s what his friend, Ellis Flint, in his infinite wisdom, believes.

When the pair arrive on the twenty-four-hour Greek party island of Friktos, Hardwick is in his idea of hell. Eventually, he decides to make the most of his holiday and to try to relax.

That is until one of their fellow holidaymakers is found dead in their apartment…

The Thirteenth Room (Book 4)

How do you stop a killer when nobody believes there’s been a murder?

A tragic suicide at the Manor Hotel rattles the community, evokes sympathy for the new widow, and makes Kempston Hardwick suspicious. The more he learns about the suspicious death, the more sure he is that whatever happened in room 13 wasn’t suicide.

When the local police are reluctant to investigate, it’s up to Hardwick and his friend Ellis to unravel the mystery. But, before the two men can even finish processing all the clues, another dead body, another supposed suicide, is discovered in room 13.

Rumors of a supernatural culprit begin to get harder to ignore as the danger and the body count mount at the Manor Hotel.

Will Hardwick discover the true killer, or will he and Ellis become the next guests who go to room 13 to check out permanently?

The Wrong Man (Book 5)

Book launches are rarely exciting. The odd murder tends to spice things up a bit, though.

When famous novelist Rupert Pearson’s PA doesn’t turn up for his book launch at the Freemason’s Arms, he’s more annoyed than upset. He certainly didn’t expect someone to find her face-down in a ditch.

For Kempston Hardwick, dead PAs are business as usual. Unfortunately. At least there are lots of excuses to visit the pub.

But why had she made so many enemies? Why are the police so keen to fit up an innocent man? And where did Doug’s pickled onions go?
