The Sister Boniface Mysteries (available from 8th February 2022)

It’s the 1960s and police forensics are rudimentary. Luckily for the residents of Great Slaughter, nestled deep in the British countryside, have a secret weapon. Sister Boniface. This nun might be predisposed to forgive – but she’s also one hell of an amateur detective.
If there’s evidence to be found, Boniface will find it, with a little help from dashing maverick DI Sam Gillespie and buttoned-up Bermudan DS Felix Livingstone, who’s horrified to be stuck in the eccentric world of Great Slaughter.
Murder, They Hope (available from 11th February 2022)
