'Quirky, compelling and thoroughly enjoyable' Kate Ellis

'A super start to the series' Frances Brody

'An entertaining murder mystery . . . witty' L C Tyler

'This quirky, fast-paced crime mystery is magically entertaining' - Dundee Courier

Live music... and explosive death in front of an adoring audience - welcome to the world of the Mindful Detective . . .

When Ethan Flynn, charismatic vocalist of supergroup Stigma, is electrocuted by his own guitar in front of 175,000 witnesses on the Pyramid stage at the Glastonbury Festival, suspicion falls on his tyrannical twin, Tyrone.

Leading the murder investigation is Buddhist detective, Vincent Caine, and his partner, DI Shanti Joyce. To Shanti's consternation the pair have become known as 'the go-to team for weird stuff in the West Country' and few crimes come weirder than this. Amidst the pulsating beats of the festival, the unlikely duo struggle to untangle the wildly conflicting statements of minders, lovers, drug-fuelled roadies, and dodgy divas.

Against the mystical backdrop of Glastonbury Tor and the tiny Somerset village of Kilton, the terrifying trail leads Shanti and Caine from clairvoyant Tarot readings to the cryptic lyrics of a lost song, cunningly concealed by the tragic superstar.

Can the unlikely mix of Shanti's down-to-earth pragmatism and Caine's intuitive sleuthing skills solve this most singular of murders? Is the future of the world's greatest festival in peril? And what happens when two consummate professionals are forced to share a tent in the steamy heat of summer?

“It's highly recommended.”

I had a lot of fun and read it in one setting. Glastonbury is one of my favorite places in the world and I was always fascinated by the festival.
It's an enjoyable and entertaining story, full of twists and turns... More
