Simon Kirby-Jones Mysteries #1

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Cat in the Stacks Mystery Series, a traditional British village cozy mystery series…with a twist!

“Sure to revolutionize the traditional British cozy and win the hearts of fans everywhere.” —Publishers Weekly

“A delightful English village whodunit filled with some of the most eccentric characters you’ll ever run across in a mystery novel.”
The Denver Post

Amateur sleuth, Simon Kirby-Jones is looking forward to settling into his new home in the quaint British village of Snupperton—despite a few potential challenges. Not only is Simon an American, but he’s also a gay vampire who controls his vampiric urges and sun sensitivity with an effective medication.

Delighted to be in the cozy English village of his dreams, he’s eager to make Snupperton his home, and joins the fundraising committee of the local church. But at the first meeting, an argument breaks out between the town matriarch Lady Prunella Blitherington, and the nosy village postmaster, Abigail Winterton.

When Abigail is found murdered the next day, Simon determines to reveal the murderer in town-- and in the process discovers all the delightfully sordid secrets of Snupperton!

“A worthy and cozy village mystery you can really sink your teeth into.”
The Houston Chronicle

“A wickedly funny send-up of the classic cozy British mystery. Dame Agatha would be rolling in her grave, unless she’s already out of it.”
—Nancy Pickard

“A delight from start to finish. Everything you could wish for in a British cozy. Simon Kirby-Jones is a charming and intriguing sleuth who puts the village of Snupperton Mumsley squarely on the mystery map.”
Dorothy Cannell

“A delightful English village whodunit filled with some of the most eccentric characters you’ll ever run across in a mystery novel.”
