The Armchair Detective

The Cosy Mystery Series

Complete Series One Lulu2


Trench has lost his memory. He barely remembers anything at all. He doesn't even remember he's a reporter for the Stoneham Herald. Somehow he manages to find the old fellow's flat.

A concerned Old Tom advises Trench to, as far as possible, carry on as normal to aid his befuddled state. He even has to hand-draw Trench a map so he can find the Herald offices.

Through his investigations, Trench's memories very slowly return.

And the truth could be that extraordinary, it may be best to forget...

Featuring a foreword by the man himself - Mandrake!
