No 1 Ladies Detective Agency meets The Durrells in 1950s Devon
Death stalks the beaches of Devon
With its pale, aquamarine waters and golden sands, the shoreline at Temple Regis was a sight to behold. But when an unidentifiable body is found there one morning, the most beautiful beach in Devon is turned into a crime scene.
For Miss Dimont - ferocious defender of free speech, champion of the truth and ace newspaperwoman for The Riviera Express - this is a case of paramount interest, and the perfect introduction for her young new recruit Valentine Waterford. Even if their meddling is to the immense irritation of local copper Inspector Topham...
Soon Miss Dimont and Valentine are deep in investigation - why can nobody identify the body, and why does Topham suspect murder? And when a second death occurs, can the two possibly be connected?

Praise for T P Fielden:
'Peak comfort read has been achieved' Red
'One of the best in the genre' The Sun
'This is a fabulously satisfying addition to the canon of vintage crime. No wonder the author has already been signed up to produce more adventures starring the indefatigable Miss Dimont.' Daily Express
'Unashamedly cosy, with gentle humour and a pleasingly eccentric amateur sleuth, this solid old-fashioned whodunit is the first in what promises to be an entertaining series.' The Guardian
'Highly amusing' Evening Standard
'TP Fielden is a fabulous new voice and his dignified, clever heroine is a compelling new character. This delicious adventure is the first of a series and I can't wait for the next one.' Wendy Holden, Daily Mail
Must have. A golden age mystery.' Sunday Express
'Tremendous fun' The Independent
