Bob Burns is his own man - a dogged Scots detective with a droll sense of humour, more interested in catching crooks than bootlicking his way up the promotion ladder. So, when his enquiries into a bizarre murder are blocked by his bosses, should he risk his careeer by carrying on regardless with the job in hand? Bob does it his way. There's nothing funny about murder, and nobody could be more serious about the pursuit of justice than Bob, yet a liberal peppering of humour seasons his investigations, thanks in no small way to the antics of his two unlikely sidekicks, a sexy forensic scientist ladyfriend with surprising tearaway tendencies and a gullible rookie constable who, albeit disarmingly, is hopelessly keener than bright. Free-spirited Bob isn't one to let national boundaries stand in his way, so he doesn't think twice about following the murder trail to the Spanish island of Mallorca, where intrigue and mayhem add unexpected excitement to a fishermen's fiesta. Backdrops of spectacular scenery, both Scottish and Mediterranean, add colour to this quirky mix of suspense and comedy. The first in a trilogy of tongue-in-cheek 'Bob Burns Investigates' mysteries.

Review:

"Peter Kerr writes with a combination of nice observation and gentle humor."

From the Author:

Having said 'hasta la vista' to the real and whimsical world of the Mallorcan characters who populated my 'Snowball Oranges' series of books, I'd like to welcome you to the fictional domain of Bob Burns, a maverick Scottish detective with a twinkle in his eye and doggedness in his bones.

There's nothing funny about murder, and nobody could be more serious in the pursuit of justice than Bob. Yet a fair sprinkling of humour infiltrates his investigations, thanks in no small way to the antics of his two unlikely sidekicks, sexy forensic scientist, Dr Julie Bryson, and gullible rookie copper, PC Andy Green. What's more, free-spirited Bob isn't one to let national boundaries hold him back, so (by happy coincidence) the Spanish island of Mallorca features strongly in this, his first chronicled case.

And there are many more humour-laced 'crimes sans frontieres' for Bob Burns and Co to solve, so I hope you will enjoy reading about their exploits in this opening story.

Peter Kerr.
