Foul Play at the Seaview Hotel is the third in the series featuring hotel landlady and investigator Helen Dexter and her dog Suki.
It follows Helen’s debut Murder at the Seaview Hotel, centred round Elvis tribute acts, and Curtain Call at the Seaview Hotel, featuring an acting troupe.
The third novel features a murderer playing a chilling game when a group of obsessive crazy golfers arrive in Scarborough to compete in a crazy golf tournament.
The ruthless team captain aims to win by fair means or foul... then the rival team captain is murdered. Can hotel landlady Helen Dexter and her rescue greyhound Suki solve the crime?
“The Central Tramway funicular plays a pivotal role in my new cosy crime Foul Play at the Seaview Hotel,” said Glenda.
“When the team at the tramway discovered I was including the funicular in the book, they were very supportive.
"They even stopped the funicular halfway down the hill for me to research and take notes. It was an amazing experience.
"Since then, my books have been on sale in the top station at Central Tramway where they sell very well. I’m indebted to their help and support. This could be the world’s first book launch in a funicular.”
Central Tramway manager Colin Powell said: “We are absolutely thrilled to feature in Glenda’s newest book Foul Play at the Seaview Hotel which further enhances the great partnership we have forged.
“Our customers love the leisurely experience of a ride on the tram and many of them pick up one of Glenda’s cosy crime books from our top station to take back to their hotel to enjoy while they are on holiday.
"We are so excited to be hosting what could be the world's first book launch on a funicular which will be an amazing event for Central Tramway, Glenda and her fans.”
North East-based Glenda and her husband Barry have a close connection to the town. She sometimes rents an apartment in the Sands where she writes – and the couple married 11 years ago at the Stephen Joseph Theatre.
The launch of Foul Play at the Seaview Hotel will be held at the Central Tramway, St Nicholas Street, Scarborough, on Saturday, December 9.
