Music promoter Paul Charles publishes third murder mystery novel
A promoter and writer who worked with some of the music industry's biggest stars has published his third murder mystery novel.
Paul Charles writes in the morning before the music world wakes up.
He launches his latest Inspector Starrett mystery in Belfast on Thursday. St Ernan's Blues is set in a real house off the Donegal coast - a retirement home for priests.
He said: "I try and get real locations. It just makes that story by association feel more real.
"It has a uniqueness about it and a great feel about it.
"It starts with a crime and it ends with a crime."
Mr Charles is one of the best-known talent agents and tour promoters in the UK and Ireland.
He has worked with artists such as Rory Gallagher, Robert Plant, Van Morrison and Paul Brady.
