In a fast-paced story of spies and murder, private detective Roger Bowman investigates the violent death of a Paraguayan agent in Cheltenham, England. The victim was stabbed while sitting in an empty railroad car on a siding in the local railroad station. Roger’s investigation initially takes him to Australia and Malaysia, but it soon becomes apparent that the answers he is seeking will be found back in Great Britain. Following the trail of clues, he meets an attractive agent with an agenda, as well as several additional spies of various nationalities with their own agendas. From a recent review on Amazon Kindle: “an intriguing mystery novel with a true international flavor” and “a fun afternoon read that feels like an exotic vacation enjoyed from the comfort of your favorite recliner”. Available in e-book and paperback formats and free from Kindle Unlimited.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The Roger and Suzanne series introduces readers to interesting places the author has visited or lived in. I spent a couple of weeks visiting Cheltenham in 2020 and thought then of what a good location it would be for a mystery novel. So the locale was part of the inspiration. I've visited Sydney, Australia, as well as Kuala Lampur and Penang, Malaysia, as a tourist and for business, so those locales fit nicely into the story as it evolved.
