There’d be no detective fiction without detectives…


Happy Thursday, everyone! We’re almost at the end of the week…whew. I don’t know about you all, but the weather around here sure has been showing us who’s boss. We’ll be turning our clocks ahead this weekend with snow still on the ground. Madness.

But it’s good reading weather! If you’re anything like me, that means…mysteries. Come join me today at Misterio Press, where I’m talking about the formation of the first official police force in England, via the 1829 Metropolitan Police Act. It was quite controversial at the time, but aren’t we glad they did it?
