On Dex Delphi and the Gold Mine, Alistair says: “My radio plays for the BBC have played to audiences close to a million and I’ve sat in theatres up and down the country watching my stage plays being performed. Having this novella published by Auld Reekie Writing, with more to come, is a new and different writing adventure and one that I’m looking forward to hugely.

Dex Delphi and the Gold Mine
A private detective, his trusty old batman and a brand new assistant combine their varied talents and, in the case of the assistant, complete lack of experience, to solve a gold bullion robbery that has Scotland Yard well and truly baffled.
Dex Delphi is a private detective who doesn’t mind breaking a few rules and treading on toes to solve crimes. As honest as the day is long, Delphi goes about things in his own way, much to the annoyance of some members of the Police. After a small-scale criminal dies in his office, Delphi is hot on the trail of a fortune in stolen gold bars. Close behind are the Police and it’s up to Dex, his batman Banks and new assistant Samantha to bag the criminals before they flee the country for ever.
Dex Delphi and the Gold Mine is a cosy crime thriller set in London and the Highlands of Scotland during the late 1940s. It is the first novella in the Dex Delphi series written by Scottish author Alistair Rutherford.
The adventures will continue in book two, Dex Delphi and the Atom Smasher, due to be released in summer 2015.
