CRIME: Tyrone Swift series

Published by Joffe Books. Available on Amazon as Kindle or paperback

Tyrone Swift is a private detective, based in London. He’s ex Met and Interpol and has a complicated personal life. He tends to get the cases the police have failed to solve. 

1. The Lady Vanished

London-based private detective Tyrone Swift is engaged to find a missing woman who holds the key to a valuable inheritance. He discovers a labyrinth of family secrets, damaged people and layers of deception. Who harbours the killer inside? Swift follows the trail through intriguing twists and turns to a dramatic conclusion.

This is the first in a series of crime novels featuring Tyrone Swift.

‘Beautifully written with psychological depth. This is a high-class private detective mystery which you won’t want to put down. There’s drama, conflict, and a family with some very nasty skeletons in the closet’ – Ann Abrams

2. Blood Secrets

Fifteen years ago a teenage boy, Teddy Bartlett, left a mysterious note and went to woods on the outskirts of London. In the forest twilight he was beaten and left damaged for life. The police never discovered who did it. The boy’s father hires private investigator Tyrone Swift to find out what happened to his son.

Swift quickly realises that the Bartletts are a family with dark secrets. Teddy’s apparently devoted sister, Sheila, his estranged brother and his father are not what they seem. Untangling their secrets and finally discovering the perpetrator of the appalling crime leaves Swift battered and bruised.

3. Two Lovers, Six Deaths

Dominic Merrell stabs his girlfriend to death and then hangs himself, leaving a note confessing to the murder. It looks like an open and shut case. Dominic’s estranged wife Georgie doesn’t believe that he could have done it. Private investigator Tyrone Swift discovers that Dominic was a reliable, devoted husband and father for eighteen years before he met the beautiful charismatic Lisa and left his family for her. No one believes that Dominic was capable of murder. So who was responsible?

Both Dominic and Lisa harbour dark secrets from their pasts and the two lovers cause a trail of destruction. Swift’s investigation  draws uncomfortable parallels to his own troubled personal life.

    just to say how very much I am enjoying your detective novels, although for me Araby will always be my favourite book. I reread it often.
    Thank you for the pleasure they give me.

      1. Hello. 🙂 Excellent news about the embryonic Eighth Tyrone Swift! I’ve just read all 7 books and love the development of the personal strands of Ty’s life in parallel with his cases. Though I too would like him to meet a trustworthy partner who accepts him for who he is. Very very enjoyable series. Thank you.
