Sugar and Spice

The Singhing Detective Series


DS Jaswinder Singh is only just hanging on to his job when a piece of dull routine work in Dagenham, where a clue hangs tantalisingly in the air, turns into a race against time to catch a group of dangerous paedophiles.There are young lives at stake, and only Jazz and his crew DS Boomer, DC Ashiv Kumar and Mad Pete are daring enough to poke a stick into this hornet’s nest.

Upon discovering that high-powered individuals, whose influence has made them untouchable, are involved with a paedophile ring, Jazz has his work cut out to hunt down these men that the government are trying to protect. As the murderous group are slowly uncovered, the detectives find themselves hunted by their own police force and MI5.

Sugar and Spice follows Jazz as he fearlessly walks into trouble, careless for his crew’s wellbeing. This third book in ‘The Singhing Detective’ series uses dark humour to relieve the tension created by the dramatic climaxes and tells a story of hard work, loyalty and cunning.

Inspired by the work of Agatha Christie, Robert Graves and Clive Cussler, M C Dutton’s topical novel will appeal to fans of her previous books, which have also been enjoyed by members of the police force.

A Short Story called Sandra Dee: Click below to hear it. It was recorded on Felixstowe Radio on February 6th. This is the first of my 4 short stories I recorded.

I have had my article The Good the Bad and the Criminal printed in the San Franscisco Senital Internet Newspaper. I have been asked to forward my article "There are no Calories in Writing" for publication in a senior magazine in America.

I had been invited by Felixstowe Radio to record my short stories. The first one was aired on 6th February and Trevor, the Managing Director said the others will be aired on their writing and short story slot on Sundays at 6 p.m.

I've just finished this book and I can say I enjoyed every sentence. Even if it was a little dark in places I can definitely say it was a delightful read.

The characters are believable and it's good to see the team of Jazz, Ash and Boomer all together again.

M C Dutton certainly knows how to write a book and how to keep people interested.
I do hope that there's more in store for the Singhing detective

M.C. Dutton

I have always loved writing. When my children were young I wrote stories for their Nursery years. Later I wrote adult short stories. My first novel "The Devil's Tears" was such fun to write and I just couldnt wait to get home from work and write some more. "Silent Night" was wonderful to write to see the characters grow and develop.

Now I am totally addicted to writing and I have started my fourth novel. There is a joy in knowing you have more writing to come home to. I dont always know what is going to happen next in a story line. The characters have developed their own personality and go in the direction they want to and I just follow them. They have taken me to places I would never have thought of.

I write the type of books I enjoy reading. I want to grip you on the first page and keep you wanting to know more. I hope you are surprised by the endings and havent guessed what is going to happen.

I was married for 35 years, now divorced for many years with 3 children and 7 grandchildren. I have had some of the usual hurdles in life and some that are specific to my life. I have been tested and won!

I am involved with criminality in my paid job and in the evenings with my voluntary job.

Over the years I have met all kinds of people through working voluntarily with Samaritans, mentoring, YOT Referral Panels: They range from awesomely heroic to sad, mad and seriously bad. I believe anyone is capable of any act as long as they can justify it.

I am fascinated by people. If you talk long enough to someone you realise that no one necessarily sees life, love and the pursuit of happiness in quite the same way.

My books are character driven and the situations bring out their raison d'etre.

I have been asked to talk on American Radio regarding my experiences with youth criminality and gangs. I found that very interesting indeed and I believe I have quite an insight into why young people are attracted to joining gangs.
