A Nose For Murder
Launching a delicious alternative to Miss Marple, M. S. Saxon has released book one in Sylvie Broadstairs series, A Nose For Murder. A rip-roaring whodunnit which takes place in 1986 in the North East of England, Saxon’s homeland, A Nose For Murder follows an unexpected amateur sleuth who will be taken to the hearts of all who pick up a copy.
Psychic Geordie pensioner Sylvie Broadstairs tells it straight and suffers no fools. When Sylvie’s estranged drag queen husband is murdered, closely followed by a second family member, she wades into the murder investigation with all the persistence of a disease – even when it looks like Sylvie herself may be the killer’s next victim.
With side-kicks Bobs, Hoggy the vagrant, Reverend Norris and a few more, the clues begin to stack up, until DCI Seymour Witless is compelled to join the unofficial murder team himself.
Easy flowing, funny and brimming with North East authenticity and colloquialisms, this novel is a breath of fresh air and leaves readers hoping M S Saxon has plenty more antics planned for this straight talking, lovable Geordie.
M. S. Saxon
After years slaving away in admin, M. S. Saxon found her creative side during a long spell at home with her severely autistic son. Silly poems and cartoon illustrations were soon taken over by novel writing, then with lockdown and shielding came the opportunity to publish. Challenges came and went, but she’s not finished yet – not with so much still left to do.
