Detective Sergeant Washington Poe can count on one hand the number of friends he has. And he’d still have his thumb left. There’s the insanely brilliant, guilelessly innocent civilian analyst, Tilly Bradshaw of course. He’s known his beleaguered boss, Detective Inspector Stephanie Flynn for years as he has his nearest neighbour, full-time shepherd/part-time dog sitter, Victoria. The Washington Poe & Tilly Bradshaw books are set in Cumbria, a lovely and sparsely-populated county in the northwestern corner of England.

At the same time, Washington Poe is trying to help his friend and colleague, pathologist Estelle Doyle, who has been charged with the murder of her father at his family home. Whilst totally believing in her innocence, all the evidence points only to her as the perpetrator - gunshot residue on her hands and a house surrounded by snow where the only footprints leading to or from the house are hers. Every time I see a new M.W Craven - Washington Poe novel is released I start to wonder is this the one that isn’t so good… Well rest assured this isn’t that novel and I am starting to think I could read about Poe and Tilly forever and just live happily until the end of time. 🤗

Born In A Burial Gown (Fluke 1)

I have a warped mind. When my wife finished The Curator, she looked at me and said, ‘What’s wrong with you?’ Saying that, I was a probation officer for 16 years and the reason for the crimes have to make sense to me. The bad guys motivation has to seem real, albeit nasty. That’s my starting point. Things tend to escalate from there . . . First Sentence: There were bastard trees and there were wait-awhile trees and there was a building that didn’t exist. They have loads left to do I suspect. The end of The Curator will leave everyone reeling and things won’t be the same for a while. That said, Dead Ground, Poe 4, is written and ready to go next June, Poe 5, The Botanist, is almost done and Poe 6, The Third Light, is fully plotted. Cut Short, a linked trio of short stories, including the recent freebie, ‘Why Don’t Sheep Shrink?’ is out in September. I have another short out in an upcoming anthology and another one out at Christmas.

What’s more baffling than anything, Estelle has been in the house with her father and a sprinkling of fresh snow remains undisturbed. All the while, a mysterious poisoner has been sending high-profile celebrities poems and pressed flowers, explaining how they will die. Their deaths soon follow, though no one can explain how it happened. Enter Poe and Tilly Bradshaw, who begin deciphering the poems, as well as the means by which this poisoner, called ‘The Botanist’, has been completing the task. No amount of police presence or surveillance appears able to help victims, which makes the killings all the more troubling. The Botanist is an engrossing read, and a worthy winner of the 2023 British Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year. It’s the first book by CWA Gold Dagger Award-winning author M.W. Craven that I’ve read, but won’t be the last. There are 10 books in the series, and new volumes have been coming out every 3-6 months since late 2020. The writer was born in 1968 in Carlisle. He grew up in Newcastle but decided to run away at the age of sixteen so that he could join the army. He spent a decade serving and travelling all around the world enjoying himself. He would leave ten years after joining up to pursue a social work degree specializing in criminology and substance misuse in 1995.Carlisle-born M. W. Craven took up a probation officer role in Whitehaven in 1999. Seventeen years later, at the rank of assistant chief officer, he became a full-time author. Someone is torturing and burning wealthy old men alive, then leaving their remains in stone circles around Cumbria. With virtually no evidence to go on, disgraced detective Washington Poe and talented young data analyst Tilly Bradshaw will have to unravel the mystery and stop the killer.
