When a body is discovered in a remote fenland field, D.I. Ray Keane finds himself embroiled in a murder investigation that exposes the dark underbelly of the local farming community and a dangerous web of drugs and greed.

As Ray and his team piece clues together, the case grows complicated when trusted allies show how easily money corrupts. But gains an unexpected champion in a seasoned new Superintendent who lends critical support during pivotal raids.

Faced with stunned witnesses and suspects alike as the tense investigation reaches its climax, Ray rediscovers his team’s impressive mettle just when he needs it most.

Meanwhile, as Ray’s personal life continues warming, he ponders the notion of an actual holiday for the first time in ages. But duty calls as the cunning D.I. puts his indelible talents to work solving this gruesome mystery plaguing the fenlands, where a killer believed evasion was just a shallow ditch away.

“Another intriguing case for D.I. Keane to solve … A gruesome discovery in a Fenland field has to be investigated in D.I. Keane’s inimitable style …”
– Carole, a reader.

Born in 1960, Ken began writing seriously in 2008 after joining a local writer’s group. Following a short story publication, he created detective D.I Ray Keane. Straw, Blood, and Bones continues the popular series set in Norfolk, with ample ideas for Ray Keane’s crime-solving adventures to continue. Writing is a solitary experience for Ken: just himself sitting at the computer, forming the story as the words gather pace. Yet the characters soon join on the journey, and as the storyline progresses, conversing with others brings helpful insights, inadvertently aiding the writing process.

When not crafting the next mystery, Ken lives in Norfolk with his supportive wife Jan, and two beloved poodles who enjoy accompanying him on the writing journey.
