Ann Purser

Many of you are fans of the Ann Purser, Lois Meade series, Murder on Monday, Warning at One etc. Coming in May will be a spin off of this series featuring Ivy Beasley. Elderly spinster, Ivy Beazley has moved into an assisted living complex and with the aid of her two sidekicks, Ivy is determined to solve the murder of a neighbour. The first book in the new series is called The Hangman's Row Enquiry.


We are all still wondering who actually wrote Heat Wave. The photograph on the back cover of the book is of Nathan Fillion, the Canadian born actor, who plays Richard Castle in the series. The author blurb on the dust jacket and on our favourite author site, Fantastic Fiction, both give the biographical details of the fictional author, Richard Castle. Certainly the show which airs on ABC on a Monday evening is popular with our customers and we will continue to try and find the author's identity.
