Bernie Quist

A modern-day Sherlock Holmes, Quist is a private investigator, or "consultant detective", as he prefers to call himself, operating from Baker Avenue in the historic city of York. His eccentric personality and deductive methods resemble Conan Doyle's celebrated sleuth and his assistant is Watson, although this Watson is a streetwise youth from the notorious Grimpen housing estate, and he's definitely no doctor. The oddly mismatched duo take on bizarre cases which invariably lead into the realms of the supernatural, a shadowy world that, thanks to his dark secret, Quist is all too familiar with.

A contemporary Sherlock Holmes, the eccentric Bernie Quist is a consultant detective in the city of York.

 

Christmas is days away and once again, the reclusive sleuth will be quietly celebrating alone. His assistant Watson, a teenager from the Grimpen housing estate, has other ideas, mostly involving parties, girls and beer.
 

Yuletide plans are halted when three chemists die and the fiancé of one hires them to look into her apparent suicide. After discovering the chemist wasn’t engaged, they’re drawn into the mystery when their employer is killed. Added to this, Watson has a puzzle of his own - Quist is clearly hiding something and he’s curious to know what.

 

The investigation leads to a shady cartel of northern businessmen, a forgotten Egyptian cult and an ancient evil lurking in the medieval  alleyways of York.
Quist’s secret is also revealed, and Watson doesn’t  know what terrifies him the most.

Rex Grant has vanished from a hotel without paying the bill, but the police seem more concerned with the murdered girl in his room. Investigating their friend’s disappearance, Quist and Watson are intrigued by his connection to the superstar singer Ligeia and the lethal mercenary soldiers who act as her management team. Irana Adler heads the squad – a female Colonel who doesn’t take kindly to intrusion – and Quist is amazed to discover that Laurel and Hardy are part of the singer’s entourage, something which is not only surprising, but pretty much impossible.

 

A dark and very peculiar game is afoot, and Ligeia’s musical voice may not be as sweet as it sounds…

A modern-day Sherlock Holmes, Bernie Quist operates as a consultant detective from Baker Avenue in York. His assistant is Watson, although this Watson is a streetwise youth from the Grimpen housing estate and he's definitely no doctor. The mismatched duo take on bizarre cases which invariably lead into the realms of the supernatural, a shadowy world that, thanks to his dark secret, Quist is all too familiar with.

 

The north of England has a new political group headed by Dominic Churchill. The White Rose Party campaign for Yorkshire independence, fairer wages and pensions, and the adoption of Yorkshire Pudding as Britain’s national dish. Unfortunately, white is the appropriate word, for their amiable façade conceals a far right organisation with a sinister racist agenda.  Watson’s Jewish girlfriend has been attacked by Churchill’s thugs and Quist is determined to expose these white supremacists and end their rise to power.

 

The detective soon realises that Churchill and his people have been targeted by someone else, a highly dangerous individual with a terrifying supernatural weapon. This man also plans to end White Rose, but his idea of ending is a touch more homicidal and gruesome.
