The Drake and Hepple Mysteries
The Drake and Hepple Mysteries are crime novels in which time and place are as important as the characters.
"The plot twisted and turned as a good detective novel should, leading to an unforeseen conclusion..."
"Attention to detail in terms of background information from experts brought in to assist the case is incredible."
An internationally famous architect, Sir Julian Porter fails to turn up to the public launch of a series of new landmark buildings for the UK Government. Detective Chief Inspector Drake and his assistant DS Grace Hepple are called in to investigate. They begin their work in the historic city of Chester where Porter’s architectural practice is located. Drake soon discovers that Sir Julian seems to have made many enemies. Some strangely mutilated bodies soon become the focus of the investigation. One is in Chester and another on the Malaysian Island of Penang where the practice is designing a prestigious housing development.
These two murders appear linked but the question is how? The case leads Drake into dangerous water involving organised crime and a mysterious oriental cult.
