WHITBY 1891
When an unknown man is discovered dead on Whitby beach, it is assumed that he has drowned. However, when the police arrive at the scene it soon becomes clear that there is more to this case than a simple drowning victim.

The chief calls in newly appointed Detective Benjamin Matthews to look into the case. Matthews, originally from Whitby, has been living these past two years in York as a PC, and is less than happy with his transfer back to the harbour town.

With a relocation, a family conflict and now a new case to solve Matthews is well and truly thrown in at the deep end; and the more he delves into the young mans complex life, the darker things get.

After a few years Chris moved on, and found a job at Bradford University working with PhD students in the Biology labs. Chris enjoyed nealry 7 years here before moving over to York University to take on a similar, be it more senior role.

Chris now lives on the outskirts of York with his partner and their Jack Russell terrier.

Having always been a keen reader and writer, Chris loves the feeling of been drawn into a good book and the escapism into another world after a long day at work.

In 2013, after finishing his first full story Chris decided that he wanted to get it professionally edited in the hope to print it out for himself. After very little persuasion Chris finally released time travel story The Vintage Coat on Amazon and had a successful book launch in Leeds.

With the publishing bug now set, Chris is enjoying writing more than ever and has plenty of projects up his sleeve.

One thought on “New Release: Detective Matthews 1

  1. Looking forward to reading this new release. I’ve read ‘D:Whitby’s Darkest Secret’ by Chris Turnbull where we were first introduced to Detective Matthews. The story is a wonderful gothic horror set as the title might suggest in Whitby a beautiful seaside town in the UK.
