THE MINDFUL DETECTIVE
ART OF DEATH published by Constable / Little, Brown. 4th July 2019
Once in a generation a crime series appears which is unlike any other. Buddhism, love, art and murder… welcome to the intriguing world of The Mindful Detective.
All Vincent Caine wants is to be left to meditate in his secluded cabin on the Undercliff at Lyme Regis. But his colleague, wisecracking feminist single mum, DI Shanti Joyce has other ideas. With their symbiotic skills, the unlikely duo becomes the go-to team for solving weird crimes in the West Country.
Laurence Anholt’s first venture into adult crime fiction has been described as ‘Broadchurch meets Fargo’. A startlingly original and funny series featuring a Buddhist detective, Vincent Caine, who often feels too much for his own good!
