The Pitkirtly Mysteries

Where is Pitkirtly?

Pitkirtly is an imaginary small town on the south west coast of Fife, geographically somewhere near Culross but not entirely like it.

Pitkirtly does have a railway line along the river front, an old mine that leads out under the Forth, a good view of Longannet and Grangemouth, and an island that isn’t really an island, but it definitely doesn’t have picturesque historic buildings with crow-step gables.

DEATH IN A COLD SPRING

It’s a cold spring in Pitkirtly, and strange things are happening, including an art show in the church hall. What could possibly go wrong?

Rather unexpectedly, this novel starts and ends with alpacas. But in between times, things get a lot more serious and even deadly on occasion as people who aren’t what they seem invade the town.

  2. Thanks for mentioning me in your blog entry (quoted above).
    This refers to the complete cull of self-published books from Kobo on 14th October – I am hoping this is just a temporary blip and that normal service is resumed as soon as possible.
