Welcome to the beautiful English village of Inkbury. Tucked deep in the North Wessex Downs, its only claim to fame is the picturesque riverside that once appeared in a Richard Curtis movie. That is, until the murder…Former stand-up comic Juno Mulligan has been suffering a serious sense-of-humour failure. Not only has she lost the love of her life, but she’s having to relocate to the (admittedly idyllic) village of Inkbury to watch out for her elderly mother, who she’s genuinely worried might be marrying a wife-killer.She hopes that her old friend, disgraced-journalist-turned-novelist Phoebe Fredericks can help her crack the case of whether her mother’s perma-tanned, iceberg-smiled, three-times-a-widower fiancé is hiding a murderous past.But before they have a chance, the local art dealer washes up distinctly dead in the village’s famous river. His lover is in the frame, but Juno and Phoebe suspect that there is a deeper secret… One that relates to Phoebe’s own past and Juno’s present.Will the unofficial Village Detective Agency solve the mystery before the killer strikes again?

‘This series has it all; everything I want in a story and series ... humour, suspense, and colourful characters. It’s one of my top all-time favourite series.’'I so enjoyed this wonderfully written tale of a retired detective and his smart if independent canine companion. From the kindly interactions of Albert to the sneaky actions of his pup, the story is nonstop. I could not easily put this book down. I read far into the night.''Wow, this book was hard to put down. The characters come to life, you become engaged in their adventures.''This book is laugh out loud funny. Rex Harrison definitely steals the show. This is now my favorite author!''This book was such a delight to read! An aged detective on a culinary road trip finds murder, friends and a little too much excitement with his not so obedient washed out police dog. Although fast-paced the author has humor laced throughout the book that will have you laughing out loud!

The Singapore restaurant owner and amateur sleuth must solve a deadly case of poisoning in this “delicious sophomore entry [with] a sly bracing edge” (Kirkus Reviews). Few know more about what goes on in Singapore than Rosie “Aunty” Lee. When a scandal over illegal organ donation makes news, she already has a list of suspects. There’s no time to snoop, though—Aunty Lee’s Delights is catering a brunch for local socialites Henry and Mabel Sung at their opulent house. Rumor has it that the Sung family fortune is in trouble, and Aunty Lee wonders if the gossip is true. But she’s more than curious when Mabel and her son are found dead. The authorities blame it on Aunty Lee’s special stewed chicken with buah keluak, a local black nut that can be poisonous if cooked improperly. Aunty Lee has never carelessly prepared a dish. She’s certain the deaths are murder—and that they’re somehow linked to the organ donor scandal. To save her business and her reputation, she’s got to prove it—and unmask a dangerous killer whose next victim may just be Aunty Lee.
