It's really a great debut mystery novel from Clive Mullis.

This book is a sherlockian mystery which takes place in an alternate universe. Despite taking place in an alternate universe, the city Gornstock smells like London.

There are many similarities to sherlockian mystery novels, but also there are different elements like; talking cats, dwarves, elves, ghosts, parallel universes and also it is mentioned that there ara dragons in some other land. This different elements are not used too much, ma...more

I received this book through Goodreads giveaways.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Banker’s Draft from start to finish. The story takes place in a wonderfully amazing place called Gorntock, a city which has talking animals , mythical creatures , a comically incompetent police force and three very clever detectives who try to track some horribly wicked people. With underground dwarf tunnels and elf boutiques this book is unlike any novel I've read before. I found it refreshing to read a book with such a...more

Move over Sherlock Holmes there’s a new detective in town and he goes by the name Jocelyn Cornwallis ! He even has a side kick, Frankie……. Then there’s Rose, the want-to-be detective/love interest and let’s not forget Fluffy the talking cat……. Yes talking cat! Though we are In the City of Gornstock, on the planet Twearth, where something’s aren’t what they seem.
There’s been a murder at an accountant’s office, and Cornwallis has to find the perpetrator but at the same time the secret police have...more

I really enjoyed this book! The central characters are two more than a little crazy detectives who are far less incompetent than first appears. Add to this a variety of quirky and whacky individuals, cats that talk, bears with tattoos and you get the flavour of this parallel universe detective story. Loved the humour and wit and feel that this book has all the hallmarks of the beginning of an excellent series. Would definitely read more by this author. I've rated 4 but it's worth 4.5.... Well do...more

Banker's Draft is my first novel and really came about by accident as I was intending to write about something else. A thought occurred to me, and this was the result.
I worked for many years in the ambulance service and developed a slightly black, slightly warped sense of humour, which I hope has translated into my book.
At present working on a second novel about Gornstock and its inhabitants.
