New 1940s crime series, featuring Inspector Betty Church - one of the UK's first female police officers. Pitch-perfect historical crime for fans of M.C. Beaton.
M.R.C. Kasasian was raised in Lancashire. He has had careers as varied as a factory hand, wine waiter, veterinary assistant, fairground worker and dentist. He lives with his wife, in Suffolk in the summer and in Malta in the winter.
