Death and Other Obsessions


In Death and Other Obsessions a newly appointed detective sergeant struggles to gain the respect of his colleagues while investigating the suspicious deaths of two authors.  

On his first day as a newly appointed detective sergeant with Merton CID, Sanjay Patel is asked to investigate the suspicious death of crime writer Joan Templeton. The main beneficiary of her will is her hard-up niece, Sarah Musgrove, whose husband has the know-how to disable her car. Then Pearl Bailey, a fellow writer who was at Cambridge with Joan Templeton, is killed with a single blow to the head. Are the murders linked? There are a number of suspects: Michael Groves, recently released from prison after serving a sentence for murdering his wife and known to both women. Or Pearl Bailey’s lodger and lover, Helena, her disapproving father, Miles Cooke, or maybe even the disgruntled literary agent Anne Gregory…

My first novel, 'Tiger Heart' was published as an e-book by Bangkok Books. My short stroy 'The Ladies Man' was included in a collection of short stroies by Byker Books.

I was born in London in 1950. I attended Sevenoaks School and trained as a doctor at the London Medical College. After completing my postgraduate training in London and Bristol, I worked as a consultant ENT surgeon in Dundee. In 1998 I moved to Edinburgh where I became honorary professor of otolaryngology. After retiring from the British Health Service and my marriage to fellow ENT surgeon, Nadtaya Makachen, I moved to Khon Kaen in Thailand. As well as writing, I teach at the local medical school and continue to take part in charitable ear surgery camps in various parts of Asia. I have three children from my first marriage: Emily, a doctor, Nicholas, an architect, and Alexa, a solicitor advocate.
