Inspector Rocke

David has also just self-published his first crime detective novel, set in Liverpool in 1960, and featuring The Beatles. He calls it “Faction”; a mixture of fact and fiction.

Set against the backdrop of the emerging “Merseybeat” scene in Liverpool, Detective Inspector George Rocke investigates murder in the heart of the city amidst the nightlife and cosmopolitan mix that was Liverpool in the early 1960s. It is about clashes of race, religion, culture and music in one of the most vibrant port cities in the world. It is the only city that can tell this story.




Fantastic ! Sherlock Holmes (or, Shamrock Wolmbs) step aside ! A well-written, spell-binding murder mystery, which puts the reader directly in the streets and in some of the famous Beatles-related venues of Liverpool in the year 1960. The author’s words vividly place you in the midst of the criminal investigation, and the scenes and colorful characters come to life as clearly as if you are watching them on TV or in a film. Keeps you guessing (and second and third-guessing) throughout, as a good mystery should, and doesn’t fail you at the end, when the truths, and clever twists unfold. For Beatles fans and non-Beatles fans alike. Buy this book ! … and I can hardly wait for the next in the series.
