Crime & mystery, Historical fiction | Paperback, eBook

Make do and murder . . . Cornwall, England 1941 - according to young PC Oliver nothing ever happens in Porthferris, but this is a little village with a lot of secrets, some more sinister than others, and everyone is up to something. 'Local Resistance' is a murder-mystery based on real events, when England was in serious danger of being invaded. Winner of a 'Discovered Diamond' award and a Discovering Diamonds Book of the Month.

Award winning author J.G. Harlond writes page-turning historical crime novels weaving fictional characters into real events. She is particularly interested in aspects of power and skulduggery so international intrigue and domestic politics are significant elements in her novels. Originally from the English West Country, Jane has travelled widely and is now settled in rural Andalucía, Spain.

Review of 'Local Resistance' by best-selling historical crime fiction author Karen Charlton: "Detective Sergeant Bob Robbins is hauled out of retirement to swell the ranks of an over-stretched war-time police force and is sent to unravel the mysterious disappearance of fisherman-cum-smuggler, Stan Hawkins. But menace lurks beneath the surface in the sleepy Cornish fishing village of Porthferris. When the villagers start dropping and munitions disappear Robbins quickly realises that nothing is quite as it seems in this small, seaside community. A great cosy mystery with loveable characters and an authentic, well-researched, WW2 setting."
