Inspector Angel and his team are faced with a baffling case when a fruit gum found at a murder scene becomes a significant clue in their investigation.

Roger Silverwood was educated in Gloucestershire before National Service. His Inspector Angel series is now on its 18 th book. Here he talks about how he came up with Inspector Angel and what he thinks makes great Crime Fiction. Where did the idea for Inspector Angel come from and how has it been developing the character over all the books?
I based Inspector Michael Angel on my father who had most of his virtues; his bad points are all mine; and his good looks are the product of any Hollywood studio in the s. I was getting tired of reading about the fictional copper portrayed as a hard drinking, smoking, swearing, gruff type who always had women trouble.
While I am sure that there must be some policemen like that in real life, I wanted a character that was more likeable and believable. He is happily married most of the time to a wife who also has a mind and a will of her own. He is attractive to other women and is occasionally propositioned, such situations up to now he has dealt with in a gentlemanly way.
There is a sort of magic about writing crime stories.
