The Detective Frank Miller Mysteries
You would think Detective Inspector Frank Miller had the dream job policing idyllic Whitby, but the seaside town harbours many secrets.
From a haunting homicide inspired by Dracula, to the cliff-side murder on the eve of the town’s literary festival, these three twisting mysteries will keep you guessing to the last page.
The coastal town, a character in its own right in the series, is captured precisely and any reader who has visited, or would like to, will find a welcome companion in these atmospheric whodunits.
My Review for The Detective Frank Miller Mysteries
by James Whitworth
James Whitworth’s stories were made all the more topical/memorable for me, because I once worked in a business situated in the yard of the White Horse and Griffin, a pub in Whitby, which features quite often throughout the series.
The author’s descriptions of the old town and surrounding district are spot on, and I was transported back to the Yorkshire I grew up in.
The two main protagonists, Detective Inspector Miller and his assistant, Detective Sergeant Riddle, felt like old friends by the time I came to the end of the books. I missed them sorely for a couple of days.
The cases they were involved in were plausible and gripping, without being too horrific. In fact, I was reminded of the Midsommer Murders series.
Other characters featured in the books are interesting, believable and, in some cases, downright colourful.
Any reader seeking a good whodunit, need look no further than the Detective Frank Miller Mysteries.
