MURDER IN THE HOUSE a gripping crime mystery full of twists (Arnold Landon Detective Mystery and Suspense Book 6) Kindle Edition
Then meet Arnold Landon, mild-mannered history buff turned amateur sleuth.
“The skilful Mr Lewis has made Arnold Landon an unforgettable character.” New York Times
Originally published as A Wisp of Smoke.
Author Ken Andrews is never at home to callers. He has one purpose in life. His book.
But someone is determined it will never see the light of day . . .
Andrews is found dead in his own living room. His head blown to bloody smithereens.
Who will finish what the dead man started?
The publisher turns to Arnold Landon. And why wouldn’t he pick up the mantle?
Everyone tells him it’s safe. The police have their man for Andrews’ killing. But the closer Landon gets to Andrews’ chequered past, the less certain he becomes.
Could the true killer be out there still? Watching, waiting for his chance to strike again . . .
Fans of Elly Griffiths, Peter James, P.D. James, Damien Boyd, Helen H. Durrant, J.D. Kirk, Bill Kitson and Peter Robinson will devour this intriguing mystery.
What everyone is saying about the Arnold Landon mysteries:
“A pleasure to pick up.” Irish Times
“Right atmosphere of menace in this highly charged mystery.” Booklist
“This intelligent, nicely textured mystery gathers speed and races to a thrilling conclusion.” Kirkus
“Good Northern atmosphere and neatly satisfying plot.” Times Literary Supplement
“Always a good read.” Berys
Planning Officer Arnold Landon is inhibited and painfully aware of his lack of academic credentials. He lives in the North East of England and as self-taught archaeologist he confounds academic experts with his detailed knowledge, which involves him in a local murder. His expertise brings him promotion to the Archaeology Department where he meets frustration, which he nevertheless overcomes by making important discoveries of ancient artefacts while playing a leading role in solving local crimes. A succession of opportunities for further promotion pass him by because of his desire to remain in touch with the detailed history of sites in Northumberland and this leads to more conflict, first with his inadequate superior and then with the stunningly beautiful Karen Stannard and, later in his career, the Italian archaeologist Carmela Cacciatore.

The research the author has put into Arnold's interest in mediaeval buildings of stone & wood is fascinating.
Arnold is a shy, awkward, lonely man, but very likeable in spite of it
I have really enjoyed all these books, but they really need to be read in order to get a real understanding of the characters.
Roy is frustrating by failing to follow up obvious trails and so leaves gaps.
