    Pearl Nolan always wanted to be a detective, but life - and a teenage pregnancy - got in the way of a police career, and instead she built up a successful seafood restaurant in her coastal hometown of Whitstable - famous for its native oysters. Now, at 39, and with son Charlie away at university, Pearl finds herself suffering from empty nest syndrome...until she discovers the drowned body of local oyster fisherman Vinnie Rowe, weighted down with an anchor chain, on the eve of Whitstable's annual oyster festival.

    Seaside murder plot

    Easy to listen to, liked the pace and coastal town setting. Will be looking out the next in the series.

    It's not the season of goodwill to all men.... The festive month is kicking off in style, and Pearl is rushed off her feet with her restaurant, The Whitstable Pearl. She's also busy planning her own family Christmas and providing mulled wine for a charity church fund-raiser when Christmas cards begin arriving all over town - filled with spiteful messages from an anonymous writer. Pearl's curiosity is piqued, but, having pledged not to take on a case at her detective agency before Christmas, she reluctantly agrees that Canterbury's DCI Mike McGuire should take over.

    This one makes no sense at all .... avoid

    No. This story lost the plot early and in a big way. I could make neither head nor tail of it. Tried to return but didn't quite manage so I'm stuck wi..Show More »

    In the run-up to May Day, Pearl's detective agency finds itself taking on a curious case: someone has been stealing underwear from washing lines. The victims, all local women with nothing in common other than a taste for fine underwear, have clubbed together to enlist Pearl's services, since the local police seem unable to help.
