The Domino Deaths


A quiet Thames-side village where the cozy mystery The Domino Deaths surfaced in the imagination of writer Helen Vanderberg.

It’s post-war, 1946 and a series of deaths occur, one after another like dominoes toppling. Retired police surgeon Toby Hunt is drawn into the orbit of an ex-colleague from New Scotland Yard when the puzzling interconnected deaths are unscrambled. The river, the village, and English noblesse oblige surface in this mystery, currently available on Amazon in paperback and e-book editions, and from Abbott Press.

(249 pages) U.S.$ 17.99 paperback

  3. I like English mysteries. I’ll have to see if our library has this. Have you read the Dorothy Martin books? One of my favorites is Deborah Crombie. Thanks for the heads-up on this.

    Did you know that there’s a most surprisingly good ‘couple’ – in fact, a mother and son – who are AMERICANS and have written some great post-war British detective stories? Their hero is a bloke called Ian Rutledge, suffering from bad PTSD, but back at Scotland Yard. I look forward to reading yours, m’dear; and have ordered it from TBD.
