"StillWaterS" is the latest book by Broadland based writer Chris
Crowther.  It's another excellent "whodunit" featuring the fictional
Navigation Ranger Jack Fellows, as featured in Chris's first Broadland
based story "Waterproof".  I know some members read "WaterProoF" as
it was mentioned on here when it was first released, which initially
drew my attention to it and to Chris.  I thought it worth mentioning it
here as I'm sure some of you may be interested in reading this as it's a
Norfolk Broads based story.  It should make good reading for those
wishing to read on their holidays!

I was fortunate enough to meet up with Chris out on the river and
obtain my copy of StillWaterS a week or two ago, but copies can be
obtained from the usual Broadland area shops and also from Jarrolds in
Norwich.  Unfortunately "StillWaterS is not in their online selection of
local books yet, but WaterProoF is available to order online.

Chris Crowther does have a website:  
http://www.chriscrowther.co.uk
/


Unfortunately he's not able to take orders via that route at present due
to technical problems, which he hopes to have resolved soon, but there
are more details of his books on there.

Keith,

I've thoroughly enjoyed this one and I'm sure that you will too.  It's
equally as good if not even more gripping than WaterProoF.  They may
even have it in the shop at WRC or you should find it in local
Newsagent/Gift shop type places.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

We found a copy in the shop/Post Office at Ranworth - a cracking read (finished it in two sittings). The fun part now is working out where the seetings are based on.

I mentioned in my first posting on this thread that Chris Crowther's web
ordering facility on his site wasn't working properly.

To update this thread with the latest info, I understand that this has now
been fixed and the book (signed and dedicated) can be ordered directly
from Chris on the website link above.

Sounds good to me!

Will have to get a copy for our hol that's coming up. And it will keep me out of Mike's hair when he's fishing!

Actually, I do have another book that I've just started (and left at the boat for the same holiday) Its a lovely book with some great pics and it's very interesting - " The  Norfolk & Suffolk Broads" by Robert Malster. Can definatley recommend it.

Perhaps we should have a "Good Read" section somewhere on the site? It could cover all manner of publications and would be a great point of reference.

"Death Under Sail", another murder mystery, was C.P.Snow's first book (in the 1920s I think) and is set on a hired wherry on the northern Broads. Highly recommended.

Anyone found swimming in the river, in Paris must be insane

Don't know about the others but Amazon seems to have plenty of copies of Death Under Sail.
