Inspector Trave

Simon Tolkien’s mystery novels about Inspector Trave of the Oxford Police are gripping and nuanced thrillers, laced with historical detail, treachery, and his signature writing style—a uniquely suspenseful blend that the Los Angeles Times called “half Christie and half Grisham.”

The novel The King of Diamonds is a Kirkus Reviews Best of 2011 Mysteries title.
