JAMES ANDREW is the Author of historical crime novels set in the 1920’s and a number of Poetry collections. “I became interested in the period just after the Great War when doing research in newspaper archives. There was a fascination with crime in newspapers of the period and I read about various murders that were much covered then and these gave me the inspiration for the first novel – The Body Under The Sands. The fourth book in the Inspector Blades series is a stand-alone murder mystery called The Suitcase Murderer. When a shop worker is reported missing, the circumstances lead Inspector Blades to launch a murder investigation. A man with ‘strange eyes’, struggling with two suitcases, is seen leaving the building where the young woman, Emma Simpson, lived. There is a stain on the drawing room floor. It could be spilled wine, but Inspector Blades fears the worst. The woman’s ex-lover is brought in for questioning. He is certainly suspicious. And he has a motive. But solving a crime is never that easy. Indeed, why did Emma’s employer pack up and leave the town? And why does a local newspaper reporter seem to be one step ahead of the police? Where is he getting his information from, and did he play a part in the crime?The police will have to put the jigsaw together. Crucial will be finding the body. But they are missing certain other pieces – clues that only a wily and motivated detective will be able to discover.
