Murder and mystery in Malta


malta-enigmaOn a holiday in Malta, several retired holiday makers become involved in a tale of intrigue and crime dating back to World War Two. This brilliant novel by John Phipps will have great appeal to young and old.




A holiday soon becomes an adventure when George Swift visits the beautiful island of Malta for the first time, hoping for sun, sea and a well deserved rest.


He meets a beautiful and enigmatic woman who is there on a quest to discover her roots and find her Maltese ancestry. Other guests in the hotel join them in trying to trace an inheritance left by her Maltese
family and soon discover that there is much more to Malta than just a friendly, sunny holiday destination. The mystery gradually unravels, sometimes putting them in danger as they uncover crimes and intrigue dating back to the Second World War. The story has pace and detail and love and romance as the group head towards the final outcome.


This is John’s second published work. His first book ‘Living Through a War’, is a memoir of growing up during WW2, which is enjoying increasing sales as a paperback and ebook.
