If You Like F. Van Wyck Mason Books, You’ll Love…

Seeds of Murder is the first book in the Captain Hugh North series. The book sees a man named Mr. Wallace found suspended in his bathroom, hanging. There is a suicide note and it seems like an open and shut case, but Captain North is not so sure. Why was the note written on paper shorter than all of the other sheets of paper on his desk? Why would he have done this during a house party? None of this sits right with North and he aims to find out what really happened here.

Mason is also the author of The Hong Kong Airbase Murders, another Hugh North Mystery. This one sees a Hong Kong company that has developed a fuel additive that can increase mileage in vehicles by quite a lot. All of the world powers want to get their hands on it and a bidding war is sure to come. However, the formula is stolen from a company safe and Hugh North is brought in to find out where it has gone to – if he can stay alive long enough to find out.
