Crime Scene - Large Print Standing Order Plan

A mixture of fiction and non-fiction titles about murder, murderers, true crime, criminals, crime solvers, forensic science and the victims. Two titles shipped every month.



Forced to leave his native Argentina, Detective Chief Inspector Guillermo Downes sought tranquility in the English Cotswolds. But violence can strike anywhere. With the kind of insights into village life that made Broadchurch so powerful, The Drowning Ground introduces a terrific new voice in crime fiction.


Customer Reviews

"Downes is an intriguing fish-out-of-water detective . . . Marrison's well-plotted mystery debut may appeal to fans of Elizabeth George and Peter Robinson."
