About the Author
Tim Heald is a journalist and author of mysteries. Born in Dorchester, he studied modern history at Oxford before becoming a reporter, and columnist for the Sunday Times. He began writing novels in the early '70s, introducing Simon Bognor, a defiantly lazy investigator for the British Board of Trade. Heald followed Bognor through nine more novels, including Murder At Moose Jaw (1981) and Business Unusual (1989) before taking a two decade break from the series, which returned with Death In The Opening Chapter (2011).
Heald has also distinguished himself as a biographer, writing official biographies of sporting heroes like cricket legends Denis Compton and Brian Johnston among others.

Although Investigator Bognor "appears" to be befuddled much of the time & not terribly bright, that's just part of the charm of these mysteries by Tim Heald. If you like older, classic British mysteries, pour yourself a cup of tea & get to know Simon Bohnor! aj wedt
Bognor is not inept, just befuddled; a delight to ride along with.
