Review

"The Vinyl Detective goes Scandi Noir? Yes please!" -- Ben Aaronovitch, author of the Rivers of London series.

PRAISE FOR THE VINYL DETECTIVE

"Hilarious and thrilling." -- Ben Aaronovitch, author of the Rivers of London series.

Cartmel has a gift for bringing you into his characters' world and making you want to stay there which simply makes this a joy to read. -- Blue Book Balloon Review

Cartmel is getting a great tune out of the characters... Will have you chuckling out loud. -- SFBook Review

Character is what Cartmel does well... An entertaining detective story with a slightly different vibe. -- The Dreamcage Review

An enthralling mystery with a wonderful gallery of grotesques." Ben Aaronovitch

"One of the most innovative concepts in crime fiction for many years. Once you are hooked into the world of the Vinyl Detective it is very difficult to leave." Nev Fountain

Like an old 45rpm record, this book crackles with brilliance." David Quantick

"This tale of crime, cats and rock & roll unfolds with an authentic sense of the music scene then and now - and a mystery that will keep you guessing." Stephen Gallagher

"An irresistible blend of murder, mystery and music... our protagonist seeks to find the rarest of records - and incidentally solve a murder, right a great historical injustice and, if he's very lucky, avoid dying in the process." Ben Aaronovitch, bestselling author of Rivers of London

"The Vinyl Detective is one of the sharpest and most original characters I've seen for a long time." David Quantick, Emmy Award-winning producer of VEEP

"Crime fiction as it should be, played loud through a valve amp and Quad speakers. No digital writing here, it's warm and rich. Every delicate pop and crackle adding character and flavour. Witty, charming and filled with exciting solos. Quite simply: groovy." Guy Adams, critically acclaimed author of The Clown Service

marvelously inventive and endlessly fascinating
Publishers Weekly

This charming mystery feels as companionable as a leisurely afternoon trawling the vintage shops with a good friend.
Booklist (starred review)

Andrew Cartmel is a novelist, playwright and screenwriter.

His work for BBC television includes a legendary three year stint as the Script Editor on DOCTOR WHO. He has also been commissioned to write scripts for MIDSOMER MURDERS, DARK KNIGHT and TORCHWOOD.

He has toured as a stand-up comedian and his stage play UNDER THE EAGLE was hailed by Time Out London as ‘bitingly funny’.

Andrew Cartmel has had a number of novels published including a sequence of spy thrillers — OPERATION HEROD, EVENT DRIVEN and CLASS WAR — featuring his creation Rupert Hood.

His latest novel, due out shortly, is WRITTEN IN DEAD WAX, first in a new series of noir thrillers featuring a seam of subversive humour, about the Vinyl Detective — a record collector turned sleuth.

The high octane (and heavy vinyl) sequels are THE RUN OUT GROOVE and VICTORY DISC.
