Hi, folks! Dane here, and today I’m super proud to announce that it’s launch day for The Leipfold Files, the third book in my Leipfold series of quirky cosy mysteries.

In contrast to the first two books (Driven and The Tower Hill Terror), The Leipfold Files is a short story collection that focuses on some of the early cases that James Leipfold took on before he started his private detective consultancy.

You can find out more and order your copy here, or read on to check out the cover and the blurb.

Join a young James Leipfold as he discovers his knack for uncovering the truth and takes the early steps towards forming his detective agency, Leipfold Investigations.

His journey will take him from the deserts of Kuwait to the inside of Reading Jail and have him investigating everything from missing gnomes to drunken Santas and crooked optometrists. Along the way, he befriends a rookie cop named Jack Cholmondeley, helps a widowed army wife find closure, and falls in love with a motorbike he calls Camilla.

This collection brings together 24 James Leipfold short stories, including three shorts that take place between Driven and The Tower Hill Terror. It’s a must for all fans of the Leipfold series and any serious reader of quirky detective novels and cozy mysteries.

The Leipfold Files is out now and available in a range of formats, so be sure to click here to check it out or to grab a copy of Driven or The Tower Hill Terror if you haven’t read them yet.

As always, thanks so much for your support and be sure to give me a follow on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok, Goodreads or whatever else you fancy. I’ll see you soon!
