Description

There is excitement in the air as the travelling theatre arrives in Seal Bay.

When The Spriggan Travelling Theatre Company arrives in Seal Bay to perform a Cornish version of King Arthur the locals flock to be entertained. But for Morwenna Mutton, sexagenarian librarian, wild swimming enthusiast and amateur sleuth, the theatre brings intrigue too. Actor and director Daniel Kitto is not the most popular member of the cast and unbeknownst to him, his role of Uther Pendragon on the opening night is to be his swansong.

In front of a horrified audience, he collapses during the dying moments of the performance in a pool of fake blood, and although the police are content that the causes of his death are natural, Morwenna isn’t so sure. And once it becomes clear that there are a number of people who stand to gain from Daniel’s death, Morwenna’s investigation takes a dangerous turn.

If you love Miss Marple and The Thursday Murder Club, then you'll love The Morwenna Mutton mysteries.

Readers love Judy Leigh and Morwenna Mutton:

‘This was an absolute joy to read. I absolutely loved this family and all the surrounding characters in this book… I shall really look forward to the next instalment and finding out what Morwenna's next mystery will be.’

‘Morwenna is a new kid on the cozy crime block, and looks likely to become established as a shrewder, tougher and more compassionate contender in the literary world of amateur detectives.’

‘This was a lovely read! I got into the story right away, Seal Bay is a fascinating community full of interesting people and what’s not to love about Morwenna? She’s brilliant! I enjoyed trying to solve the crime with her and I adore her eccentric fashion sense and always read what she was wearing with a smile on my face… a wonderful book, a great read and I am looking forward to reading more of Morwenna’s adventures in the future.’

‘Judy Leigh has created amateur sleuthing at its finest. I think the novel would make a fabulous television cosy crime drama. It was highly entertaining, most enjoyable, fun and light-hearted. I cannot wait for more of this fabulous series.’
