The Devil's Horn hits the street!

*The Devil's Horn* is published this week!

After a busy year, I am delighted to announce that The Devil’s Horn my debut crime caper featuring Isabel Flores Montserrat, a feisty Mallorcan sleuth, launches this week. It will the first in a new fiction series set on the beautiful island of Mallorca, my cherished home.

Having penned six Mallorca based travel titles, it was only a matter of time before I allowed Isabel, or Bel, as she’s known locally, to come to life through the pages of a book. Unlike many protagonists in popular crime fiction today, Bel is not a television, social media, drug or alcohol junkie, and prefers to spend her time enjoying the simple pleasures that life brings. All the same, she does indulge in Chupa Chup lollies and packets of sunflower seeds and let’s not discuss her love of ensaimada pastries! She’s not disaffected, doesn’t come with a swag bag of neuroses and isn’t hiding a dark and complicated past. She loves her family and close village community, her pet ferret Furó, her gaggle of hens and her friends. Every day at 6am she swims at Can Repic beach in her local port and revels in the beauty of her surroundings. Isabel is life affirming, cheerful, eccentric and at times wilful and rebellious but ultimately loveable.

Life in the golden valley of Soller, running her mother’s holiday rentals agency is good until out of the blue she is contacted by her old police chief, Tolo Cabot, to help solve some baffling crimes. Reluctantly agreeing temporarily to return to her former life as a detective, she and Tolo race against the clock to solve a child abduction, murder of an elderly recluse and emergence of a drug cartel.

The Devil’s Horn is available at all good bookshops in the UK and Mallorca, and is also available at many bookstores online internationally. It can be purchased in Kindle or in paperback at Amazon
I do hope you enjoy it and if you do, would so appreciate a review at amazon, should time permit. Huge thanks!
