Well, it’s setting for the 25 Sanford 3rd Age Club Mystery, Naked Murder. Aside from that, there is something about the place, but I’m not going to tell you what.
It’s fictitious (obviously) and sits somewhere south of Lincolnshire’s premier seaside resort, Skegness. It’s roughly in the area of Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve. Joe, Sheila, and Brenda are called there to investigate a series of thefts, and the moment they arrive, they’re in for a surprise…or a shock, depending upon how you view the matter.
That’s as much as I’m going to tell you about the tale.
The writing involved considerable research into areas I knew little about, and for that I’m indebted to fellow author, Ted Bun for his assistance.
It’s something of a landmark in that it is #25 in the series, and if it’s taken a while to turn up, that had more to do with poor health than any lack of motivation on my part.
Those same health issues prompted me to set it in the Skegness area. My wife and I were there in the late spring, a time when I thought my gastric problems were settling down. During a day on the seafront, they came back with avengeance and in order to get my own back, I set Naked Murder there. (You see? Even despite my problems, I’ve never lost my daft sense of humour.)
Those tummy troubles are still hassling me, but I’m due for examinations which should a) identify the cause and b) hopefully put it right.
In the meantime, we soldier on. I am such stuff as idiots are made of. The next STAC, Murder at the Meddlercon, should be with you by Christmas, but because of and depending on the results of the medical investigations, I can’t guarantee that. Whichever way it turns out, it should be with you no later than Valentine’s Day.
For now, delve into Naked Murder and have chuckle at Joe & Co’s misadventures in sunny Lincolnshire.
