The Fishing Detectives: The Match

Book Three

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

The Plot

Fred Tench organises a team to take part in The Police National fishing competition and he struggles to keep his team from straying from his plans, which doesn't include an all out attack on the carp. He knows his team can't win the match, but he is hell bent on beating the team from The Met due to a wager he made during a moment of anger. He and Toffy are also investigating some metal thefts that are causing some concern whilst Jacko is running a sweep regarding the Governor's sexual habits.

About Fred Tench

Fred Tench is a detective working in the the city of Stoke on Trent in Staffordshire. There might not be many murders but the cases are interesting and tinged with plenty of 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.


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.
