The Bingo Hall Detectives by Jonathan Whitelaw
I was extremely lucky to be gifted a copy of The Bingo Hall Detective for review by Alice Murphy-Pyle. Very grateful to Harper North UK and my review will follow very soon.
Jonathan Whitelaw launched his new release The Bingo Hall Detectives at the Edinburgh, Scotland branch of Waterstones. It was as expected a fun evening with lots of love in the room for Jonathan. Two of the Caledonia Crime Collective had come to support their buddy. Crime fiction writers Marion Todd and Emma Christie.
I came away from the event knowing a few new things about Jonathan. The main thing is he really loves and respects his own mother in law. He is currently watching with his wife, The Gilmore Girls and loving it. He said his favourite character was Rory because she wants to be a journalist. This actually blew my mind because I am a major GG fan and it is my go-to comfort show. Also, if you want to know where the best scones are in the UK, Tweet Jonathan for the name of the shop.
Jonathan is currently working on book two of the series and is delighted to be back amongst his two main protagonists Jason and Amita.
I am extremely proud of the journey Jonathan has been on. I was very lucky to work on his virtual tour campaigns when he was signed with Urbane. One of the nicest and genuinely kind authors on the planet. He deserves all the success in the world.
The Bingo Hall Detectives
Eyes down to find a killer who’s playing to win…
An irresistible slice of murder and mystery – there’s a killer on the loose in the Lake District, and the members of the Penrith Bingo Club have decided they’re the ones to catch the culprit…
Jason Brazel is an out of work journalist who lives in Penrith with his family and mother-in-law, Amita. She knows everyone and everything that’s going on in this corner of the Lakes.
So when it’s discovered that Madeline Forbisher, one of Amita’s fellow regulars at the bingo club has died, found by the postman outside her crumbling country home close to Ullswater Lake, she senses immediately this is no accident. The trouble is, no one else seems to take her suspicions seriously.
That is, until she enlists the help of her friends at the Penrith Bingo Club. Dismissed by many as eccentric, over the hill or out of touch, it turns out that it’s unlucky for some that these amateur sleuths are on the case…
