“This book is a different type of mystery read that is definitely one that should not be passed up! It brings two different murders into the plot, one of which is based on an actual murder that occurred in Bedford in 1919. The author then brings in a second murder, which takes place one hundred years later. These two murders have the reader constantly trying to make the connection and solve them before the characters do.
There are several characters that at first have no apparent connection to one another. However, as their personal paths are revealed you soon discover how each character has crossed paths with one another in some way. Trying to guess this as well as the ultimate murder connection, murderers and the motives make this a thrilling read.
There is much detail put into each character that they each fully develop while you get to know them. This book will make you feel like you are the detective while you enjoy all the surprises and twists as the story unfolds. A highly recommended book with a great ending!”
Only 99p until 19th July!

Margaret Roberts writes to us about her most recent achievements:
“I have been busy with other pear-related work in 2018 and was invited to advise on a new publication called The Worcester Black Pear http://www.marcherapple.net/product/new-book-the-worcester-black-pear-by-wade-muggleton/
I have also continued my research into Warden Abbey, Bedfordshire and the monastery’s story in brief is now available on the Warden Abbey Vineyard website: http://www.wardenvineyard.org.uk/warden-abbey-story/
I have also contributed to a blog post on the Warden manuscripts, which was published by the Wren Library, Cambridge in March 2018 https://trinitycollegelibrarycambridge.wordpress.com/2018/03/
The highlight of 2018 was the unveiling on 20th July of a reconstruction painting of Warden Abbey. Completed by former Historic England reconstruction artist, Peter Dunn, the artwork shows the abbey as it may have appeared c.1370 and every aspect is based on evidence unearthed by Margaret over the last 4 years. I was extremely grateful for the support of Dr Glyn Coppack, an internationally respected authority on the Cistercians (also known as the White Monks) without whom the project would have been impossible. The Old Warden History & Heritage Society has purchased the original, which will go on public display.”
This sounds so interesting Margaret. Thank you for the update.
Nigel has recently been in touch with his exciting news. He writes:
Clouds Are Not Spheres – My portrait of Benoît Mandelbrot, the founding father of Fractal Geometry.
- My biography Behind Open Doors by Ingrid Maclean.
We are holding a second launch party to celebrate the publication of Behind Open Doors at Helgi’s Bar in Hackney at 6.00pm on Friday 22nd February. I will be hosting this event.
I continue to work on a film called The Interactions Avenue. I am the producer, director and presenter of this TV documentary on the latest finding in Quantum Mechanics.
Bewley Books are publishing two new novels I’ve written under the banner Karma Lawyer. The first is called Courage and Love, which will come out in the Spring. Its sequel When the Knitting Had to Stop will be released in the Autumn.
My production company Fractal Fun Ltd aspires to produce a documentary based on Behind Open Doors during the course of 2019.”
Hey Nigel, what a busy person you are. Good luck with all of your ventures.
