The Return of Turpin

(The tenth book in the Gentleman Detective Mysteries series)
A novel by


A missing child, a dangerous criminal, a race against time to save an innocent life.

Humphry Strange always had a fear of travelling at night. Only the news that his mother was dying could persuade him to ignore his anxiety. Now his worst nightmares have come to life; robbed at gunpoint on a dark and lonely road, his only child disappeared – presumed kidnapped.

When Bainbridge is summoned to aid in the search, he soon finds himself seeing death around every corner and a sneaking suspicion that not all is as it seems within the Strange family. With each passing day, hope for finding the lost child alive ebbs. What has the masked man done with her and does it have any connection to the tragedy that befell the Strange family ten years ago?

Can Bainbridge locate the girl’s kidnapper before any harm befalls her, or is the Strange family destined to be beset by another untimely death?

The Return of Turpin is the tenth novel featuring the unusual detective duo, in this satisfying and funny murder mystery series by Evelyn James.

If you love quirky, cosy, detective partnerships, with Victorian flare and a hint of humour then you’ll love Evelyn James’ latest light-hearted murder mystery series.
