Guy Winter Mysteries

Winter’s Pearl – Prologue to the Guy Winter Mysteries Series is a novella which sets the scene for the first full-length Guy Winter Mystery, entitled Winter’s War. Set in London in the first months of the Second World War during the period of the so-called ‘Phoney War’, it draws us into the complex world of Scotland Yard’s most famous detective Guy Winter; the Mystery Man. So named because no other living detective has ever solved as many mysteries as Winter of the Yard.
Winter’s War is the first full-length Guy Winter Mystery. It is set in England in the Second World War at the time of the Battle of Britain and the start of the London Blitz. Chief Inspector Guy Winter has been Fleet Street’s favorite detective for over a decade. Dubbed the ‘Mystery Man’ by his friends and enemies alike, for all his fame he cuts a lonely figure at Scotland Yard, where every newspaper story is fresh grist to an already tired mill. Laid low by personal tragedy there are many who suspect that the great detective’s career is over.
Winter’s Revenge is the second full length Guy Winter mystery. It is set in England in the Second World War at the time of the Battle of Britain and the beginning of the devastating night Blitz of London in September 1940.

London reels under the onset of the Blitz as every night hundred of Luftwaffe bombers unload their cargoes of death over the beleaguered city.

Winter’s Exile is the third full length Guy Winter mystery. It is set in England in the Second World War at the time of the London Blitz in October 1940.

Tthe Mystery Man is ‘exiled’ to the country to recover and recuperate from his injuries. Inevitably, there is no escaping the war. When the son of the local Squire is found dying within hours of a German bomber crashing in a nearby field Guy Winter is suddenly back in his element.

In Winter’s Return Guy Winter returns to London, a city at once reeling under the relentless nightly bombardment, yet oddly growing ever more accustomed to the ongoing nightmare. Shunned and unwanted by Scotland Yard the Mystery Man is assigned to S Division in Hampstead. However, his exile is short-lived.
It seems as if the Mystery Man’s past has finally caught up with him; that there is no escape.  Fresh from having picked up the trail of the Ripper and survived the bombing of Coventry, Guy Winter has returned to London leaving his mistress Helen Chase fighting for her life in hospital to be arrested by Special Branch.
It is December 1940, the bleakest most terrible month of the London Blitz and Guy Winter’s trials have only just begun. Now Scotland Yard’s most famous pre-war detective and his battled circle of friends and sometime detractors must unite to hunt down the evil men responsible for the brutal killings of so many women, who are intent on bringing down Winston Churchill’s castle and potentially, knocking Britain out of the war.
