Product Description

Product Description

‘The Dance-Hall Mystery’ is a gripping story set in Blake Hartley’s home-town of Keighworth, Peru and Spain. It’s a saga of international cocaine-trafficking in which the sleepy town of Keighworth is caught up, much to the consternation of its police superintendent, Donaldson. As ever it’s left to Inspector Hartley to track down the traffickers. However, his boss, Arthur Donaldson, does turn up trumps for once in the end and saves Hartley’s life.

More About the Author

John Waddington-Feather is a retired school master and Anglican priest. For forty years he was a prison visitor and Assistant Chaplain at Shrewsbury Prison. He was born and brought up in Yorkshire and studied at Leeds University. He has a scholarly interest in Yorkshire Dialect.

The formatting of the Kindle editions of the Blake Hartley novels is currently under review, however, phrases in his books such as ' t'boys' and ' t'olden days' are intentional representations of the Yorkshire Dialect spoken by some of the characters in the book and should not be regarded as typos.

I chose the four star rating rather than five star because it didn't move as sickly as I thought it could
However I still recommend it to other readers
