New Author to Joffe Books #NewRelease #TeamJoffeBooks #crimefiction @joffebooks

We are very pleased to welcome ROY LEWIS to Joffe Books Publishing. Roy has been writing Crime Fiction for many years and we are thrilled that Joffe Books is now republishing the brilliant Inspector Crow series. A LOVER TOO MANY will be released on Friday 14th September so watch this space.

Read on to learn a little about Roy’s writing career:

“After I was called to the Bar at the inner Temple I started writing legal textbooks but when I was appointed  as One of Her Majesty’s Inspector of Schools I was told that activity had to end, so–happily–I turned to crime fiction (being an obsessive writer). My first novel was A Lover  Too Many, Collins Publishers said they wanted an author not a book, and I was launched! Life was easier those days! That first book was not particularly descriptive of a certain area but as things went on I began to use my own experiences–of life in the Rhondda Valley, the West Midlands and later, Tyneside.
A Lover Too Many proved successful being published in UK and USA, France (in translation) Portugal and over the years has run into several editions, published by different houses. It introduced DI John Crow who appeared in several further novels.”

A LOVER TOO MANY (Inspector Crow #1) by Roy Lewis

Discover Inspector Crow of Scotland Yard. Enjoy a beautifully told story from a time before smart phones and DNA testing.

 

“Builds up to a good climax and keeps you reading.” The Observer

 

Peter Marlin’s wife is found strangled and he becomes the prime suspect. She’d only just returned from an unexplained absence of several months. And during that time, Peter had found a new lover. Everything points to the husband but there’s no real proof.

 

Inspector John Crow is called in to help the local police. But his new colleagues aren’t keen on an outsider. And Crow must solve the case before anyone else dies.

 

This fast-paced mystery will have you gripped from start to finish. Set in England in the late 1960s, this is the first book to feature Inspector John Crow. More coming soon.

THE DETECTIVE

Skeletally-built, mild-mannered Inspector John Crow is established in the Murder Squad in London and constantly meets hostility when he is called upon to work on murder cases in regional crime squads in Wales and the Midlands. He displays strong moral feelings, and a sensitivity which brings him into conflict with regional staff as he doggedly and successfully pursues the truth in cases where he is called in.
