I’m the author of THE MARLOW MURDER CLUB, a brand new murder mystery novel, out in January 2021.

I also created the TV show DEATH IN PARADISE, and have written 4 standalone / original Death in Paradise novels featuring the first detective, Richard Poole.

Praise for The Marlow Murder Club:

‘A hugely enjoyable murder mystery written with wonderful verve, humour and compassion. Utterly delightful’ ROBERT WEBB

‘This is just the kind of book I love to read – a proper whodunit with clues, suspects, and engaging leading characters. Great location too, and lots of charm and humour. I loved it’ FAITH MARTIN

‘Agatha Christie meets Colin Dexter. Genuine, likeable characters and natural, funny dialogue. A pitch-perfect murder mystery with a heart-stopping finale’ MICHAEL WOOD

‘The perfect book for these troubled times – fiendishly clever and funny, with delightful and original characters. I loved it!’ ROZ WATKINS

‘The Marlow Murder Club is a hugely entertaining mystery, and Judith Potts, the Marple of Marlow, is a wonderful new detective character’ MARTIN EDWARDS

‘It combines deft plotting, witty dialogue and a trio of formidable female amateur investigators – a dog-walker, a vicar’s wife and a septuagenarian crossword compiler – of whom the last is one of the most original and beguiling characters I have read about for a long time. The book is a delight from start to finish. Robert Thorogood has brought the fun back into crime fiction’ SIMON BRETT

‘A great escapist yarn from start to finish and a real tonic.’ SIMON KERNICK

‘Move over, Superman, there’s a new caped crusader in town, and she’s kicking butt. Her name is Judith Potts, and you’re going to love her. Beautifully crafted, funny and thrilling, Thorogood has created a delightful read. I have started looking at real estate in Marlow. Because I want more’ DEON MEYER
