Welcome to the world of Lewis Hinton

If you like a detective thriller with period details, historical accuracy, quirky characters, fast paced plots, a tinge of the supernatural, and immersive settings, then you will like The Jack Sangster mysteries.  The series, which takes place in the late 1960's and early 1970's, features the cases of a special investigator with a sleuthing talent for finding missing children, and begins with ‘The Face Stone’, set in England's North West in 1969. The second, ‘Angel’s Blade’, is set in Cornwall a year later, and the third, 'Jehovah's Wind' (due out in June 2023), is set in Devon shortly after that. And whilst the novels feature number of recurring characters, each book is a complete story in itself, so you don't need to read them in any particular order.


New Lewis Hinton novels are in the pipeline, including further adventures of Sangster, and we'll be announcing these as and when we can. 


You can keep up to date with Lewis’ social media, reviews, and upcoming events here, as well as accessing author extras, such as details of the locations, folklore, history, and other inspirations for the books that will only be available in Beyond the Mystery'.

An apology. A technical glitch with our Message Board has now been fixed, but all the old messages are lost, so if you messaged us before the 1st of December could we humbly ask that you resend your message. Thank you.


Poetry & Autism. We were very moved by a wonderful mural we saw in Falmouth whilst on our recent Autumn 2022 tour of Cornwall to promote Angel's Blade. This mural was dedicated to ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder, which is hinted at but unnamed when we meet some of the students in Angel's Blade) and prompted us to publish a poem written by Lewis Hinton two years ago for his autistic grandson. This poem is now posted in Beyond the Mystery', and if you enjoy reading it and are so inclined, you can make a donation to the 'Ambitious about Autism' charity using the link you can find below the poem.
