If you long for an old-school English detective then you've found him! The Nathan Hawk Murder Mysteries are the work of renowned tv scriptwriter Douglas Watkinson who wrote Midsomer Murders, Poirot, Lovejoy and many more.
Haggard Hawk is the first in a series of sharply witty crime novels, set in the UK countryside just outside London. When Nathan Hawk is fired from the police service he wonders what he'll do with the rest of his life. The future is certainly brighter, given his new romance with a local doctor, Laura Peterson, but there's still something missing...
And then a neighbour does him the courtesy of getting himself murdered. The local police tell Hawk not to get involved but that's red rag to a bull. Pretty soon he's back where he should be - catching a killer.
Why not join this hard shelled, soft-centred British private investigator in the first of The Nathan Hawk Murder Mysteries? It's a crime series guarantered to keep you on the edge of your reading chair!
