Book Cover: Death on the Dyfi

How far would you go to help a friend?

When his BFF Brenda is arrested for murder at a lesbian writing retreat, California writer Thomas Gunn jumps on a flight he can’t afford, and heads for rural Wales. Brenda was at daggers drawn on social media with the victim, but insists she is innocent, despite being covered in the girl’s blood.

With suspects ranging from an 83-year old writing student, a group of very earnest academics, and mysterious author The Vampyr, Brenda and Thomas set out to solve the crime. Thomas has to cope with vegetarian food, Brenda’s Irish Wolfhound and her agent’s assistant, the twinky Cedric. Brenda just has to cope with him.

The local cops are unimpressed with the duo’s crime-busting efforts, and even less impressed when another writing student is killed. But Brenda and Thomas squabble their way to a solution that the cops would never have guessed in a thousand years.

What a shame that they’re wrong. Will they realise in time to prevent another death on the Dyfi?


About the Authors

Austin Thomas Burton

Long-time San Diego resident, Austin Thomas Burton grew up in a small college town that couldn’t decide if it was Southern, Midwestern or just wouldn’t fit in anywhere. That static childhood resulted in a restless need to see the country and the world. So far, he’s been lucky enough to visit over 16 countries and lived in 11 towns in 4 states.

His interests are widely varied and often in conflict with one another, but chances are he’s reading a book at the moment.

Burton currently lives in a historic Georgian Revival house built in 1897 in Toledo, Ohio’s Old West End with his husband and 2 spoiled Basset Hounds. Sadly, the house is not haunted as promised.
