Wonny Leaabout this book: Having created Detective Chief Inspector Martin Phelps and his team I was keen to develop them and after they had solved the horrendous murder of a gay man in Cardiff I had to give them another case to solve. One of my objectives with this series is to introduce readers to some of the fantastic locations in South Wales and stimulate an interest in Welsh culture.
Coopers Field is an area within the grounds of Cardiff Castle and Bute Park and within minutes of leaving Cardiff City centre, locals and visitors can be surrounded by the beauty of nature. As with all the books in this series I visited the area and took the photograph that has become the front cover.
It wasn't difficult to write about activities within the Nursing Home as I was able to draw from first-hand experience and use anecdotes my friends were willing to share.
The Coopers Field Murder is the title of the book but we are not sure that the body found in Coopers Field is a murder victim. However the elderly lady proves to be the unlikely catalyst that leads Martin and his team to put an end to the systematic killing of vulnerable residents at Parkland Nursing Home.
