Norm by Frank Rawlins

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Take a pinch of Morse, a dash of Lewis, a spoonful of Hathaway ... and
there you have Norm. Norman Philip Ducker, Oxford’s curious new detective.
Science, cosmology, religion, and the mathematics of chaos fascinate
him. So do football, rugby, motor racing, and the art of winning. But he
still can’t get his head round opera or poetry or Doris Lessing.
He likes rock and pop; he drinks lager as well as real ale; he uses
public transport, except when he borrows his girlfriend’s little Ford Ka.
But he does like crosswords.
Norman Philip Ducker is far from the norm. Especially where law and
order is concerned. For a start, he’s not even a policeman ...
Norm was a copper; now he’s a civilian employed by the police as
a coordinator for Crimestoppers, the charity that invites anonymous
tip-offs. This is the story of how he battles the Brass to play a key part in
unravelling a complicated web of murder. It’s also a closely-observed human drama and a moving love story.
