Roger A Beamish

Tony George (as Roger A. Beamish) is a first-time author of this crime mystery story. Its genesis comes from the author's decades-long interest in detectives and crime, especially gothic and film noir themes, together with all the film and television detective productions from the 1940s until the present. Favourites are too numerous to mention but they begin from the gothic novels of the nineteenth century and run through the golden age of crime novels in the 1920s and 1930s, then on to film noir and television detectives such as Columbo, Poirot and Marple, Morse, Vera, Wallander, Endeavour, and so on. He received his doctorate at Sydney University and postdoctoral fellowships at Tufts Medical School, Boston, and the John Curtin Medical School at the Australian National University. He is presently an associate professor in the School of Life Sciences at the University of Technology Sydney.


  • Inspector Dillon and the Case of the Missing Girl


    The story begins in 1950 with a murder in a remote Cornwall village. A cryptic message is discovered on the victim and the case is assigned to newly-appointed DI Harry Dillon of Scotland Yard. The mystery looks impossible at first with few clues and hidden names and disguises.
