D.S. Nelson Takes You a Murderous Journey

In typical Agatha Christie style, if its murder that you want then its murder you shall get, for D S Nelson’s  “One For The Rook”  is a book full of delights.  Best described as a cosy crime thriller it has all the hallmarks of a classic Miss Marple Murder Mystery.

Razberry Rating:

Set in the sleepy village of Tuesbury we follow the adventures of one Blake Hetherington who with his friend Delilah set about solving the mysterious murders of two of the village’s residents, one unfortunately for Blake, very unceremoniously ended up in his allotment patch.

The story is full of little quips and wonderful dialog as the two nose sniffers unravel the clues to this ‘who done it’, the author’s style of writing has that lazy stroke to it giving you a sleepy old England feeling which is perfect for this type of story.

If you are a lover of the Miss Marple Murder Mysteries, then this one will be right up your street.  Full of colourful prose and well described scenes make for an interesting read, with a nice touch of adding some mythological quotes before each chapter, make this a series to keep an eye out for.

“A perfect read on lazy afternoon with some tea and biscuits”.

About the Author

My introduction to murder came from Agatha Christie. Her inquisitive Miss Marple, of St Mary Mead, and very Belgian Poirot, with his ‘little grey cells’, captured my imagination from a young age.

With a passion for the crime genre, my writing includes cosy crime novelettes and short stories. I am currently working on the Blake Hetherington mystery series, the first of which, ‘Hats Off To Murder’ is now available on Kindle.

My influences include Agatha Christie, Josephine Tey, Arthur Conan Doyle, Terry Pratchett and Peter Robinson.

I started a blog to share experiences and ideas. I have been blogging since 2008. Over the years my blog has evolved and now ’Hat Paint, Ladders and Wonky Pooh’, focusses on my love of the crime genre and my writing, in particular ‘The Blake Hetherington Mysteries’.

What’s in the name? Well, hat paint, ladders and Wonky Pooh are three of the murder weapons used in Murder is Easy by Agatha Chrisite. One of my favourite Agatha Christie novels.
