STROLLING beneath Weston's Grand Pier may never seem the same again once you've read The Bodies In The Beach, a new crime thriller by West Country author Paul Stephens.

The book opens with a young woman’s body found buried (almost) under the pier, and goes on to involve cross-border crime, community tensions and more shocks in the sand, as detectives race to catch the murderers before they strike again.

Paul said: “The book is aimed at readers who enjoy murder mysteries, but without graphic sex or violence.

“It’s also very much about Weston, with most of the action taking place on the town’s streets and in its cafés and pubs – some real, others imagined.

“At the centre of the story is the relationship that builds up between detective Mary Miller and oddball genius, karaoke artiste and amateur sleuth Michael Slade. He might seem an unlikely character, but in fact he was inspired by a real-life friend of mine in Weston.”

The Bodies In The Beach is on sale at Tudor Books in High Street, Weston, and available from Amazon in paperback and for Kindle.
