Death in Dulwich

Thirty-something single mum Beth Haldane is forced to become Dulwich’s answer to Miss Marple when she stumbles over a murder victim on her first day at work. 

To clear her name, Beth is plunged into a cozy mystery that’s a contemporary twist on Golden Age crime classics. But can she pull it off? She already has a bouncy young son, haughty cat, a fringe with a mind of its own and lots of bills to pay, as she struggles to keep up with the yummy mummies of SE21.

Join Beth in #1 of the London Murder Mystery series, as she discovers the nastiest secrets can lurk in the nicest places.

Christie’s Review of Books 1 & 2: 

4. 5 Stars

Very well-written and finely crafted mystery series!!!

The series center around main character, single mother, Beth, her son Ben, and her charming cat, Magpie.  As the series opens, she has just landed a great job as an assistant archivist at Wyatt’s, the boys’ Endowment school in Dulwich. She is really excited and hoping when the time comes, her son Ben, will be able to get in. It will also help her financially, adding to what she makes in doing odd jobs, such as editing a website or selling features to a newspaper. Imagine her surprise when she finds the body of her new boss on her very first day.  She becomes a possible suspect, so she finds herself trying to solve the mystery to clear her name and finds herself dealing with Inspector York who infuriates her. It’s a mystery at its finest! While investigating on her own, she discovers dark secrets looming just below the surface of the beautiful, affluent village of Dulwich.

In the second book, Girl in the Gallery, Beth once again finds herself at the center of a new mystery. Again, she finds herself at odds at times with Inspector York. However, they do make a great team, and they do work well together most of the time. Castle does a great job of continuing to build not only the main characters but the secondary characters as well.  Not only is this a great mystery, Castle also touches on some really important social issues. I love the setting, and as with the first book, I’m anticipating the next book in the series. As she asks, her friend, “And anyway, seriously, what else could possibly happen in Dulwich,” we all know Beth will be back. She has a knack for murder mysteries, and I for one can’t wait until she’s back.
