A modern-day Sherlock Holmes, Quist is a private investigator, or “consultant detective”, as he prefers to call himself, operating from Baker Avenue in the historic city of York. His eccentric personality and deductive methods resemble Conan Doyle’s celebrated sleuth and his assistant is Watson, although this Watson is a streetwise youth from the notorious Grimpen housing estate, and he’s definitely no doctor. The oddly mismatched duo take on bizarre cases which invariably lead into the realms of the supernatural, a shadowy world that, thanks to his dark secret, Quist is all too familiar with.
“Clever, very funny and characters you want to have a beer with! A fabulous read!”
“Humorous with historical observations, and not a little intrigue. As you would expect from a “Conan Doyle type” – an excursion into the supernatural. Highly recommended!”
“The author so exquisitely describes the English towns and countryside that his readers can step along with his fantastic group of detectives as they pursue an ancient monster that is destroying bad guys.”
