M J Evans creates a modern-day mystery set in Bowness-on-Windermere

The Ghost of Bowness follows the disappearance of a young girl…

In this gripping mystery novel by author M J Evans, set in Bowness and around Lake Windermere, the friends of a young girl called Tara, who mysteriously went missing ten years ago, hire PI Jordan Lewis to investigate her disappearance. 

Jordan was heading back to her car. It seemed to her that she had a really interesting case on her hands.’

There have been frequent sightings of what witnesses describe to be Tara. Jordan tries to piece together these statements to try and uncover the truth. However, as her investigation deepens, multiple bodies start appearing around the usually quiet Lake Windermere and Bowness. As Jordan gets closer to the truth, the attacks become more frequent. 

Can Jordan solve the mystery of Tara’s disappearance before more residents are hurt? Or will Jordan and the police uncover more than they had bargained for? The Ghost of Bowness is a gripping mystery and detective novel, with strong local links.

M J Evans lives in Morecambe. After having spinal surgery in 2010, he was unable to work a physical job and decided to finally fulfill his dream of writing and now writes full time. His first novel, The Corpse that Danced, was published by The Book Guild in 2014. He then published To Dig up a Murder in 2015. M J Evans is available for interview, and review copies of The Ghost of Bowness are available on request.
