Treble Clef Blog Tour Poster June 6th

The latest in the bestselling Harrogate Crime Series – discover your next favourite crime series now!


Harrogate attracts hundreds of players to the annual Games Convention and for one player it is the perfect opportunity to kill by the mechanics of his own sinister game.

Each victim will die in the same way. Each will be classed as the loser and their time will have run out. The escape room and the game table will draw more, each believing they are invincible.

However, in every game there is always a traitor waiting in the wings.

MoMoBookDiary Review:

I loved this book and honestly cannot recommend it highly enough.

I was gripped from the very start and couldnt put it down until I had reached the final page!  The working relationship between Bennett and Owen is brilliant as is the way the author so brilliantly describes the investigation and police procedures.  Awesome author, I can’t wait to read more.

It is a gripping and I mean GRIPPING story which I would recommend settling down and reading until you finish.  It is constant action and I can’t think where in the story would be a good spot to put the book down – its just so more-ish!! 

This was the first of Malcolm Hollingdrake’s Harrogate Crime series I have read but I am going straight back to the start and reading from book one (short links to buy all the books in the series are below).

In a word – awesome!

You could say that the writing was clearly on the wall for someone born in a library that they might aspire to be an author, but to get to that point Malcolm Hollingdrake has travelled a circuitous route.

Malcolm worked in education for many years, even teaching for a period in Cairo before he started writing, a challenge he had longed to tackle for more years than he cares to remember.

He has written a number of successful short stories, has nine books now available and is this is the eighth crime novel set in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

Born in Bradford and spending three years at Ripon College, Malcolm has never lost his love for his home county, a passion that is reflected in the settings for all the DCI Bennett novels.

Currently, Malcolm is writing a new series which is set in Merseyside.

Malcolm has enjoyed many hobbies including collecting works by Northern artists; the art auctions offer a degree of excitement when both buying and certainly when selling. It is a hobby he has bestowed upon DCI Cyril Bennett, the main character in his successful Bennett series.
