Salmonweird Library

Come in, come in!

I’m afraid since the living people moved out, new books are rather hard to acquire.

The village library is small at the moment and it doesn’t really have a librarian so you’ll just have to rummage around to find what you’re looking for. We do have all the latest volumes from the local activities though. Karl is writing them as we speak. Do keep checking back; retired detectives tend to have a lot of time on their hands.

Salmonweird: A Cornish Crime Comedy Caper

The first book in the Salmonweird series. Is it possible to kill someone who is already dead? That’s the question facing DI (retired) Karl Blackman, the only living resident in a Cornish ghost village.
