Once Upon A Crime

Comedian Fergus Craig created a Twitter phenomenon with Detective Roger LeCarre – a character never seen before in modern fiction: a tough but troubled detective with a drink problem and a marriage in trouble. 


Now the creation is at the centre of the hilarious, ridiculous, gripping comic crime novel Once Upon A Crime. LeCarre runs 10km a day but probably burns more calories shaking his head at what has become of his city.  Exeter is set to become the UK Capital of Culture and the ambitious lord mayor wants to turn things around- but when a young man's (dead) body is found in the centre of town, things get murky. Can LeCarre find out who killed the young man, save the city and change his energy provider before the new more expensive tariff kicks in?
