Logline

Impossibilities' is a fast moving series of impossible crimes, locked-room murders and bizarre mysteries featuring Cassandra Winter (a Private Investigator based in London who lives on a narrowboat, 'The Drunken Duck'); her grandfather J. Penderel Winter (a hypochondriac mystery author who applies his brilliantly creative mind to explain the unexplainable); and Rufus Knight (a wisecracking streetwise genius confined to a wheelchair). For fans of (tv series) 'Jonathan Creek' and 'The Avengers', and every armchair criminologist who has a passion for puzzles!

Genre

Crime, Detective, Mystery

Short Summary

Every 'Impossibilities' story features a current-day impossible crime (usually a locked-room murder) or a bizarre mystery, often with a supernatural slant. One foot is planted in the real world, whilst the other seems to be tap-dancing in an alternative reality where almost anything can happen!


Every story concludes with a logical explanation of how and why the crime was committed, even though the events seem to have defied rational explanation.
