Introducing Janie Juke

Janie Juke has a famous ally – Hercule Poirot, no less.  Janie has been intrigued by Agatha Christie since she was a little girl and now she works in a mobile library she has the perfect opportunity to read the latest crime thrillers.

The Tapestry Bag sees Janie take on the first of her challenges as an amateur sleuth, when she tries to track down her best friend, Zara, who has gone missing. Zara’s boyfriend was killed in a hit-and-run and one year on from the day he died, Zara disappears.

The story takes place during the ‘swinging sixties’ in Tamarisk Bay, a quiet seaside town.  The Tapestry Bag is full of twists and turns, as Janie comes across unsavoury characters who each have a reason for wanting Joel dead.

Along the way, Janie turns to Agatha Christie’s crime novel,  The Mysterious Affair at Styles, to help her untangle the web of lies and deceit.

The Tapestry Bag is available for pre-order from Amazon.
