Smorgasbord Book Promotions – New Audio Book on the Shelves – #Crime – Remember No More ( D.S. Kite Mysteries) by Jan Newton

Delighted to share the news of a new author joining the shelves here on Smorgasbord. Jan Newton comes highly recommended by Judith Barrow and is celebrating the release of the audio version of the first novel in the DS Kite Mysteries

About the book

Newly promoted DS Julie Kite is at a crossroads. Her husband’s new job takes her away from urban Manchester and its inner city problems to a new life in tranquil mid-Wales. It is to be a new start for them both. On her first day at Builth Wells police station, Julie is thrust unexpectedly into the centre of a murder investigation in a remote farming community. At the same time, Stephen Collins is set free from HMP Strangeways. He immediately makes his way back to mid-Wales, the scene of his heinous crime, in order to confront those who had a hand in his incarceration.

The twists and turns of the investigation into the death of solicitor Gareth Watkin force DS Kite to confront her own demons alongside those of her new community and the lengths to which we’ll go to protect our families.

One of the many five star reviews for the book

I have to say, this has been one of the most delicious reads I’ve enjoyed in a long time. I’m no stranger to Jan’s prize winning short stories. She has a superb skill at crafting well-paced, intriguing tales and creating memorable characters; you know, that elusive type you either cheer for or find yourself shouting at! I wondered, could Jan weave her storytelling skills over a three hundred page novel….only time would tell.

So, it was very late on a Sunday night when I finally began reading. I (foolishly) imagined that ten pages would be my tally before sleep would overtake me. I could not have been more wrong. Exhaustion finally halted me at page one hundred and fifty eight! I simply could not put this book down. The following morning, bleary eyed, I immediately pawed the bedside table for the remaining pages. Within hours I’d feasted, and I can tell you, it was good!

Right now I am fighting the urge to spill the beans, to let you know who, what, where and how…..but why should I rob you of this pleasure. Jan has totally succeeded in stepping up from a short story to novel proportions without any loss of stride or charm. She has also given us a detective novel firmly rooted in mid-Wales from someone who knows the subtleties of both location and locals.

I’m positive D.S. Kite will be back very soon, personally I can’t wait!

  1. I’ve been across to Amazon to buy this one – based on her personal bio alone! – and find I bought it in May 2020. Time to give it some air, methinks! ♥♥
