The Sherwood Mysteries

The Beast of Toggleton Common

by J. P. Darcey

About The Book

People walking and running their dogs in the early evening on Toggleton Common have been seeing a fiery eyed, fierce looking creature coming out of the woods at the far side of the common. The sounds coming from the beast are hideous and frightening. It scares every creature away—animal and human.

After Chrissy and Joan see the beast for themselves, they decide to investigate. Unearthing secrets concerning an old man living as a recluse in an old farmhouse near the common and his son's disappearance over a year past gradually come to light during their investigations.

Did the beast kill the boy? During their investigations Chrissy finds herself in frightening and compromising situations which seem impossible to escape from. Will they succeed in solving the mysteries?

About The Author

JP Darcey was born in Lincolnshire, England, in 1953. She moved to Canada in 1975 with her husband and two young sons. She now lives alone in a remote part of County Donegal, Ireland—a beautiful place that inspires her to write.
The Shadow in the Bell Tower is JP's first published novel. The sequel, The Ghost of Pudding Hill, is now two-thirds complete.

JP has enjoyed writing from an early age and written poetry and short stories. She also took a course through the Institute of Children’s Literature in the US, writing for children and teenagers.

Mysteries, murder, and detective stories are a prevalent genre, and JP has natural talent for this kind of storytelling.
