Holmes, Margaret and Poe




A compulsive and entertaining contemporary mystery featuring a team of unique private investigators - perfect for fans of Richard Osman and Knives Out.

Brendan Holmes, Margaret Marple and Auguste Poe run the most in-demand private investigation agency in New York City.

The three detectives make a formidable team, solving a series of seemingly impossible crimes - from a priceless art theft and a decades-old unsolved murder, to mysterious disappearances that expose corruption and bribery at the highest levels of power.

But it's not long before their headline-grabbing breakthroughs, unconventional methods - and untraceable pasts - attract the attention of the NYPD and the FBI.

After all, it's no surprise that there's a mystery or two to unravel in the city that never sleeps . . . not least, who really are Holmes, Margaret and Poe?

Praise for Holmes, Margaret and Poe

I loved every criminally delicious moment of Holmes, Margaret and Poe. What a wild ride! Hooked from the first page - and not just by the edge of my seat crime stories but also the depth and complexity of the characters. Rock on Book 2!
