We have two exciting, but very different, new books coming very soon. These are both currently at the printers and expected in the next few weeks.
Bluebell Wood - David Blake's DI Tanner #10
A hanging body found by an uncontrollable dog, a murdered historian with an unpublished book, and a mysterious cottage, hiding in the shadows of Bluebell Wood.
With DCI Tanner’s wedding just days away, a man is found hanging in a local wood. Meanwhile, a retired university professor is discovered with his throat cut. At first, one seems unrelated to the other, but when Tanner learns of the professor’s unpublished book, the two investigations begin to merge, until all lines of enquiry meet, deep in the depths of Bluebell Wood.
Set within the mysterious beauty of the Norfolk Broads, this fast-paced British detective series is a dark Norfolk murder mystery with a slice of humour and a touch of romance, one that will have you guessing until the very end, when the last shocking twist is finally revealed.
Doodlebugs and Rockets
Most people of a certain age will be familiar with the term ‘doodlebug’ or V1, but perhaps less familiar with the impact that it, along with the V2 rocket, had on Norfolk and Suffolk during the Second World War. Several rockets were specifically aimed at Norwich, whereas the V1s’ target was predominantly London, yet a great number found their way to East Anglia causing death and destruction.
This book sets out the background to the V-Weapon campaign against Britain and the significant part that Norfolk and Suffolk played in combating these attacks. The countless missions from the airfields, the role of Radar and the Royal Observer Corps, through to the artillery barrage from the coast are explored. A record is provided of all V1 and V2 incidents along with first-hand memories of those who experienced them.
Norfolk and Suffolk 1944-1945
