What's In A Name?

Genre: Mystery

Book Summary

When Joe Dalgetty is found dead at home, a postmortem reveals he died of a heart attack, and with no suspicious circumstances to suggest otherwise, he becomes just another statistic. Neighbour Rosie Hewitt isn’t convinced, and when Joe’s house, and then her own, are broken into, she tries to persuade the police something’s not right, but with a burglar targeting pensioner’s houses they don’t think Rosie’s case is anything special.

Whatever the police might think, Rosie knows she’s right, and she’s heard there are two ex-police officers who are starting a detective agency. Maybe they will be prepared to listen to her.

It’s not long before Slater and Norman uncover their first anomaly: Joe Dalgetty might have been 62 years old, but officially, he didn’t exist until five years ago! And that’s just the start. In a case involving a robbery that happened almost 30 years ago, an old London gangster, a protected witness, false identities, and two dead schoolboys from the sixties, it’s difficult for Slater and Norman to work out who’s really who, and what’s really going on.

About the Author

Having spent most of his life trying to be the person everyone else wanted him to be, P.F. (Peter) Ford was a late starter when it came to writing. Having tried many years ago (before the advent of self-published ebooks) and been turned down by every publisher he approached, it was a case of being told ‘now will you accept you can’t write and get back to work’.
But then a few years ago, having been unhappy for over 50 years of his life, Peter decided he had no intention of carrying on that way. Fast forward a few years and you find a man transformed. Having found a partner (now wife) who believes dreamers should be encouraged and not denied, he first wrote (under the name Peter Ford) and published some short reports and a couple of books about the life changing benefits of positive thinking.
Now, happily settled in Wales, and no longer constrained by the idea of having to keep everyone else happy, Peter is blissfully happy being himself, sharing his life with wife Mary and their four rescue dogs, and living his dream writing fiction.
