Summary

A charming bed-and-breakfast. A diabolical murder. A guest with a secret to hide....

The prestigious Lavender bed-and-breakfast in Chiddlinghurst, England, has stylish decor, lovely gardens, and a deadly problem.

Norah Travis, a beautiful young woman, has been found murdered in one of their rooms. Detective Inspector Graham, a crusader for justice with a penchant for tea and a dark side of his own, is assigned to the case.

The jocular proprietors, Amelia and Cliff, seem to have nothing to hide, but the same cannot be said for their longtime guest Tim. Then, there’s the bitter ex-husband, the tight-lipped housekeeper, and a doddering old man....

There’s no shortage of suspects, but Graham’s instincts lead him to investigate Norah’s mysterious past. And a heinous secret soon comes to light that just might be worth killing for.

The Case of the Screaming Beauty is the first book in this best-selling traditional British detective mystery series with a modern twist. Fans of Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie, and CSI will want to share a sip of tea with Detective Inspector Graham and his team as they become like friends.

Great introduction

First time with inspector Graham I like the background introduction to him. He is a very detailed character I like that. The story is narrative is very good. I liked that you got to know every one really well even if they are not a main character or suspect.

You need to scream about how good this book is

I loved this book. I enjoyed the author's Reverend Annabelle Dixon series and thought I would give it ago. So glad I did because i think it is a great start/introduction to a new series. In this series the author has decided to make a break from the a amateur sleuth giving the reader (or listener) a look at how the professionals do it and not just with the detective as he struggles to put the clues together but also the help he receives from others, like in the lab. Good job Detective Inspector Graham was on the case because I never would have made an arrest, mainly because there was a number of suspects with possible motives and all of them were credible. I also liked the epilogue at the end, it was a nice way to end the case and find out what happened to the rest of the suspects. The characters were likeable and down to earth and I think I am going to enjoy solving crimes with Detective Inspector Graham.
In a quiet English town, a housekeeper in a small B&B discovers a body. Detective Inspector Graham and Sergeant Harris are called in to investigate. Can they find the killer? And what made her scream the day before and then deny it? Did she know she was going to be killed? Possible by the angry ex husband or the new man in her life? With no murder weapon, witnesses or obvious motive the pair will have to think out side the box to solve this case.
I liked the narrator. At first I thought his voice was a little bit to gruff but he soon had me convinced he was the right man for the good. I liked the use of sound effects it really made it sound like he was talking on the phone.
