The Midthorpe Murder Mysteries


A series of mysteries with snooty, successful novelist Raymond Baldock and his on-off lady love Lisa Yeoman. Often outrageously funny, ribald, not so cosy, but not full blooded hard boiled, if you enjoy a good laugh and a complex msytery, then check the Midthorpe Murder Mysteries.

A Case of Missing on Midthorpe

A comic mystery of unruly behaviour, nouveau riche snobbery, and third-age decadence, complete with dodgy pills and murder.
When successful crime and thriller writer, Raymond Baldock returns to Midthorpe, the scum council estate where he was born and brought up, he is hell bent on wielding his wealth and influence over everyone for the few days that he is there.
But he has reckoned without romance in the shape of the lovely Lisa. Then there is the mystery of the wheels stolen from his car. And after his demure, divorced mother poisons her boyfriend and is arrested on a charge of attempted murder, Raymond must turn detective to unravel the mystery... and get his wheels back.

Missing persons, costly thefts, fake pills, a dead body, a middle-aged mother determined to embarrass her son and flaunt her new-found zest for life and love, spell out a recipe for comic mayhem in this, the first Midthorpe Mystery.



A Case of Bloodshed in Benidorm

Raymond Baldock hates Benidorm.
So why is he there? Because he has been pressured into going, and when he gets there, it lives down to his worst expectations.
His laptop is stolen, his mother is there, attending a hen weekend, and he finds her in a compromising situation. He is humiliated in a bar, then blackmailed, and as if that is not enough, he has to face the determined wrath of Lisa Yeoman, the woman he stormed away from in the spring.  And this is all before the bodies begin to turn up, and they leave him as one of the prime suspects in the death of those…
Bumped Off in Benidorm.
Another dose of comic mayhem and mystery from Midthorpe.
