‘TP Fielden is a fabulous new voice and his dignified, clever heroine is a compelling new character. This delicious adventure is the first of a series and I can’t wait for the next one.’ – Wendy Holden, Daily Mail

Must have. A golden age mystery.’ – Sunday Express

TP Fielden is the fiction-writing name of the acclaimed royal biographer and commentator Christopher Wilson, who has penned biographies of Charles, Camilla, Diana and other members of the British royal family.

For 20 years a leading Fleet Street journalist with columns in The Times, Sunday Telegraph, Daily Express and Today, he is now a best-selling biographer and novelist.

Most recently the creator of the English Riviera Murders featuring 1950s supersleuth Miss Dimont, he also remains an internationally in-demand writer and commentator on royal matters, with regular appearances in TV documentaries and reports across the globe (see also the Christopher Wilson Amazon Author page).

Christopher is the co-founder of Oxford University's journalism awards, and for his work in supporting student journalism he was honoured by St Edmund Hall, the university's oldest college, with membership of their Senior Common Room.

He is married to an American writer and lives on Dartmoor, England.

‘A fabulously satisfying addition to the canon of vintage crime’ – Daily Express

‘A book which is detailed, deft, and deadly’ – Sunday Times

‘Tremendous fun’ – The Independent

‘One of the best in the genre’ – The Sun

‘The growing reputation of crime writer TP Fielden's series of whimsical murder mysteries set in 1950s Devon is enhanced with his latest novel, A Quarter Past Dead. More strength to the Waterman's Fountain Pen that I imagine the otherworldly Mr Fielden uses to write these lovely books!’ – The Diplomat magazine
