Update on ‘Murder, now and then’ by Diana Jackson
Leaving WW1 and ‘Ancasta Guide me Swiftly Home’ for a while I return to my recently released Bedfordshire murder mystery.
Reviewed by Tony:
“Think Midsomer murders meets Bergerac, set in the near future and based on an actual murder that took place in 1919, and you’ll have a good idea of what to expect from Diana Jackson’s latest thriller. Unlikely coincidences keep you guessing and, in classic murder mystery style, have you changing your mind several times about the killer’s identity – or who the next victim might be.
I particularly liked the evocative scenes set in Diana’s much-loved Channel Islands and could easily imagine this book as a successful TV drama. The eventual denouement is original and inventive – I definitely didn’t see it coming! Highly recommended, Murder, Now and Then is one of those books you can’t put down until the mystery is solved.”
A great big thanks to Marcus Webb for putting together the ‘Murder, now and then’ video:
In the autumn I will be visiting a few fairs, making a couple of talks and generally getting out and about, but in the next couple of months on this blog, I will be doing a virtual tour of the places important to ‘Murder, now and then’ and celebrating the lovely, but underrated county of Bedfordshire, with hidden gems and places to visit and explore.
