Who Sent Clement?

(The first book in the Clement series)
A novel by


From the bestselling British author, Keith A Pearson, a miraculous tale of debts, threats, and a dead man in double denim.

"A genuine page-turner which manages to seamlessly combine nostalgia, suspense, and mystery — all laced with a healthy measure of British humour."

Beth Baxter always dreamt of being an author. Unfortunately, fate has a twisted sense of humour so rather than writing books, she now sells them in a second-hand bookshop. With middle-age approaching and her life unfulfilled, Beth is at least grateful her forthcoming marriage to Karl is worthy of hope — or, so she thought.

Within the space of a few days, her fiancé’s sordid past catches up with him and Beth finds herself embroiled in a sinister game of hide and seek. As her life is torn apart and hope abandons her, Beth is thrown an unlikely lifeline when a former gangland fixer by the name of Clement crashes into her life and offers help.

Unfortunately for Beth, there is one minor complication with her saviour — Clement claims he died in 1975 and must help Beth as penance for sins committed in his previous life.

With just seven days to avoid a fate she can't bear to contemplate, Beth chooses the lesser of two evils and reluctantly joins her deluded, politically incorrect companion on a quest across London in search of a solution.

Will this unlikely partnership succeed? Will Clement ever come to terms with paying five quid for a pint? And will Beth ever learn the truth about who sent Clement?

“Feelgood fiction for fans of the BBC’s Life on Mars. This book begs to be made into a film or TV drama.”

“Yet again Pearson fully hits the spot with a genius (and rare) balance of comedy, nostalgia & intrigue.”

“An author who really knows how to engage with the reader. He makes the unbelievable believable.”

“Big, brash and beautifully flawed - Clement is my kind of hero!”
