Paradise Exhumed (Ray Hammett Thrillers Book 1)

Two reporters. A relentless killer. A desperate race to stop the slaughter.

In an exclusive English village for millionaires, residents believe their safety is guaranteed... until the infamous celebrity Gemini Hart is found horrifically murdered in her own home.

Reporters Ray Hammett and Jessica Summers investigate. They are shrewd, courageous and caring, and share a humorous camaraderie. Soon their new partnership is tested to its limits.

Inside the village, the pair find eccentricities, deceptions, hatreds and dark secrets, which reveal that this suburban paradise is rotten to the core. As more murders compound the mystery, Hammett and Jessica struggle against vicious gangsters, disbelieving police and murderous attacks.

Nothing makes sense. Many people lie about knowing Hart. Everyone is hiding something. Hart's enemies form a huge list of suspects. Some of the killer's new victims are ex-lovers of Hart, others enemies, others seem to have no link to her. Hart’s past, from beginnings as a prostitute to her rise to fame and fortune, proves vital to the case. As the bodycount rises, every suspect is alibied for at least one murder...

If Hammett and Jessica work fast and hard, they might just stop the slaughter – if they live long enough.

A twisting whodunit that blends vibrant characters, investigation, lethal danger and thrilling action.

From Five-Star Reviews:
“...a thriller... you can’t stop reading”
“I went back to Sherlock Holmes, this was awesome”
“The mystery combined with the action and murder made it something I couldn’t resist”
“...characters were interesting and real... full of twists and turns”
“...a fantastic whodunit thriller... Highly recommended”
“...an absolutely awesome, intense read.”

“The concept for Paradise Exhumed was to combine several elements which are widely loved: the quirky character-style of classic Midsomer Murders; the twisting mystery of Sherlock Holmes; and the action and danger of a hard-boiled private detective tale. I wanted a fast-paced, baffling whodunit with an atmosphere of dire threat. Once I began writing, the novel evolved quickly into a form of its own and I hope readers really enjoy the result.”
