More About This Title Ghost and Ragman Roll
Ghost and Ragman Roll is Book 4 in the bestselling Kind Hearts and Martinets crime series, featuring the eponymous Portsmouth detective DCI Jack (Jane) Austin. DCI Jack Austin is trying to enjoy his honeymoon with Detective Superintendent Amanda Bruce. But it soon becomes a busman's holiday (or the crime busting equivalent) with news of a turf war in Portsmouth, a missing obese gangster who turns up skinny, and the seemingly unconnected murder of a banker in Paris. When an ambitious new detective arrives on Jack's patch and starts making waves, he knows the time has come to get back to Southsea and protect not just his rather tarnished reputation, but those who truly matter to him. Ghost and Ragman Roll is another criminally funny romp with the world's greatest - or is that worst? - police detective, DI Jack (Jane) Austin.
Pete Adams is an architect and designs and builds projects around the UK when he's not writing up a storm. Pete describes himself as an inveterate daydreamer, escaping into those dreams by writing funny stories that contain a thoughtful dash of social commentary. With a writing style inspired and shaped by his formative years on an estate that re-housed London families shortly after WWII, Pete's Kind Hearts and Martinets series of books have been likened to the writing of Tom Sharpe. Pete says that the best feedback he's received was that it made me laugh, made me cry and made me think. People have said they laugh out loud reading his books, and if he can continue to get that reaction from his readers then he would be very content indeed. Pete lives in Southsea with his partner, the Irish Nana, and Charlie the star-struck Border terrier, the children having now flown the coop.
