The Fishing Detectives: Bun In The Oven

Book Two

This is the second book in the Fishing Detectives series that features Detective Sergeant Fred Tench.

The Plot

Fred Tench and Toffy Evans investigate a murder. Somebody used the kiln in a pottery factory to cremate their victim. A new man is brought in over Fred Tench and not only does he take Fred's beloved car, but he puts the detective under a lot of stress to bring the case to a premature conclusion. However, Fred has the last laugh when he gets his revenge.

About Fred Tench

Fred Tench is a detective working in the city of Stoke on Trent in Staffordshire. There might not be many murders, but the cases are interesting and laced with humour. If you like hard living, hard swearing detectives with a son of a bitch attitude, stay clear of this book. However, if you are looking for a crime story where the main characters don't make you cringing everytime you turn a page, this book might be just the one for you.

Breaking The Mould

Okay, Fred Tench is a copper, but that doesn't stop him being a good guy. To prove this takes his new assistant, Detective Constable Toffy Evans on his first fishing session. However, things don't go to plan and Toffy uses a secret bait to land some good carp whilst Fred almost has a dry net.


When I write books I want to entertain the reader, so I hope I've thought up a good plot and made the characters believable and interesting. However, most of all I hope the reader finds it enjoyable.
