The herring-seller's apprentice by L. C Tyler ( Book )
14 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A mediocre mystery-writer, Ethelred Tressider has even less interest in writing his books than his (dwindling) fan base has in reading them, and his agent, the pesky, nosy, vulgar, chocolate-chomping Elsie, has no interest in them at all. But with a name like Ethelred, things can always get worse, and when Ethelred's dishy ex-wife turns up dead they do
The herring in the library by L. C Tyler ( Book )
8 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When literary agent Elsie Thirkettle is invited to accompany tall but obscure crime-writer Ethelred Tressider to dinner at Muntham Court, she is looking forward to sneering at his posh friends. What she is not expecting is that, half way through the evening, her host will be found strangled in his locked study. Since there is no way that a murderer could have escaped, the police conclude that Sir Robert Muntham has killed himself. A distraught Lady Muntham, however, asks Ethelred to conduct his own investigation. Ethelred (ably hindered by Elsie) sets out to resolve a classic 'locked room' mystery; but is any one of the assorted guests and witnesses actually telling the truth? And can Ethelred's account be trusted? In the process, we meet one of Ethelred's own creations, the fourteenth-century detective Master Thomas, who is helped in his investigations of a mediaeval crime at Muntham Court by a small and rather pushy Abbess with a taste for honey cakes ...Is it possible that Master Thomas can shed some light on the twenty-first century case, and on Ethelred's own motives for investigating Sir Robert's death? "The Herring in the Library" is another ingenious outing for crime fiction's most mismatched double-act. 'Tyler juggles characters, story, wit and clever one-liners with perfect balance'

In an effort to rejuvenate his flagging career, crime novelist Ethelred Tressider decides to set his new book in Egypt and embarks on a 'research trip' with his literary agent, Elsie Thirkettle, in tow. No sooner has their cruise on the Nile begun, however, than an attempt is made on Ethelred's life. When the boat's engine explodes and a passenger is found bloodily murdered, suspicion falls on everyone aboard including a third-rate private eye, two individuals who may or may not be undercover police, and Ethelred himself. As the boat drifts out of control, though, it seems that events are being controlled by a party far more radical than anyone could have guessed

Detective and mystery stories. When obscure crime writer Ethelred Tressider vanishes from his home, his indefatigable agent, Elsie Thirkettle, is soon on his trail.

Having followed Ethelred to a hotel in the French Loire, she find herself confined there with him after a prominent philatelist is murdered. Elsie is torn between her natural desire to interfere in the police investigation and her urgent need to escape to the local chocolatier. Ethelred, meanwhile, seems to know more about the murder than he is letting on. It does not help his peace of mind when two further guests are poisoned. Finally the time comes when Elsie must assemble the various suspects in the Dining Room, and reveal the killer's true identity
Étrange suicide dans une Fiat rouge à faible kilométrage by L. C Tyler ( Book )
3 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La 4è de couv. porte en plus : "On n'est jamais mieux servi que par soi-même. Lorsque son ex-femme, Géraldine, disparaît, Ethelred décide de mettre à profit ses talents de détective pour la retrouver. Petit problème : les connaissances en criminalité d'Ethelred, écrivain professionnel, proviennent de romans policiers tout droit sortis de son imagination qui, depuis un moment, s'est, elle aussi, volatilisée. Quoi de mieux, pour retrouver l'inspiration, qu'une enquête grandeur nature ? De fausses pistes en révélations renversantes, la réalité dépasse de loin la fiction..."

The herring-seller's apprentice by L. C Tyler ( Recording )

Ethelred Tressider is a crime writer with problems - his latest novel is going nowhere, mid-life crisis is looming, and he's burdened by literary agent Elsie Thirkettle, who claims to enjoy neither the company of writers nor literature of any sort. Then his ex-wife Geraldine vanishes, and when the disappearance becomes a murder enquiry, the police decide that Geraldine has been the victim of a local serial killer. Elsie bullies Ethelred into embarking upon his own investigation, but as their enquiries proceed, she begins to suspect that her client's own alibi is not as solid as he claims. Some descriptions of sex and violence, some strong language. 2007
