“Good fun and a fast and most enjoyable read” (Shropshire Star)


As a young man, Malcolm Noble served in the Hampshire Police, a chapter of his life which provides some background to his crime fiction. He has written thirteen mystery novels following characters from the 1920s through to the 1960s.

Press reviews have emphasised the author’s sense of place and atmosphere, strong characterisation and first rate storytelling.  He was voted into the top forty favourite historical novelists for 2013 (Historical Novels Society) and has repeatedly been in the top 20% of authors borrowed from UK libraries

Malcolm Noble lives in Market Harborough where he and his wife run a bookshop


“This fantastic novel. It leaves you begging for the next in the series.” (Montgomeryshire Advertiser)

“Scoundrels and skulduggery are the watch words” (Harborough Citizen)

“Roll over, Miss Marple. This fantastic village whodunnit … is intricately plotted, suspenseful, darkly funny, and beautifully written, leading the reader inexorably towards the clever denouement. I loved it. I will read more.” (Historical Novels Society)

Fascinatingly original. Full of interesting characters. An array of odd balls gives it almost a Dickensian feel” (Nottingham Evening Post)

“Rave Reviews. Already a collectors item” (Shropshire Chronicle)

“Noble has a fine knack of description, creating a sense of place and atmosphere. The denouement is nicely done with plenty of irony” (Portsmouth Post)

“If you like your murder mystery, these books are for you.” (BBC Radio Leicester)
