Murder On The Rocks by J.S. Strange – Book Review



Murder on the Rocks (Jordan Jenner Mysteries Book 1) by J.S. Strange

When PI Jordan Jenner returns to work following the death of his mother, his first case involves a murdered writer…

James Fairview has been killed. As a member of a prestigious writing group hosted by bestselling author Joseph Gordon in the heart of Cardiff, Jordan not only has to cope with solving the mystery, but also deal with press attention.

As Jordan investigates, he discovers his mother’s death may not have been so simple. And when another writer is murdered, Jordan realises the killer could strike again…

A murdered writer, a mysterious death, and a group with jealousy at its heart, this is Jenner’s toughest case yet.

A cosy murder mystery with a gay male detective, Murder on the Rocks is the first in the Jordan Jenner Mysteries series. If you’re a fan of classic whodunits you will love this!

A perfect read for those looking for Welsh crime fiction.


Set in Wales, this is the first in a series featuring Jordan Jenner.

Jordan has been off work on compassionate leave after the death of his mother,  and has just returned to work as a private investigator.

The police have asked for his help when a member of the author, Joseph Gordon’s writing group is murdered, poisoned!

Jordan is told he may be more involved than he realises……and when he finds an old photo of Joseph Gordon and the murder victim, he sees his mother in the picture….

When his father says he thinks Annabelle may have been murdered…..he tries to find out more about the deaths and what was the link between Jordan’s mother and Joseph Gordon?

An interesting and engaging, cosy mystery with enough twists to keep you guessing, there’s also a budding romance between Jordan and Lloyd and of course Jordan’s lovely cat Oscar. I’ll be looking out for more in this series.

About J.S. Strange:


J.S. Strange is an author from Wales, United Kingdom. He writes crime, mystery and horror. His first novels, published in 2016 and 2017, were set in an apocalyptic London. Murder on the Rocks, is the first in a cozy crime mystery series, featuring a leading gay male detective.

Murder on the Rocks was written by Strange for many reasons. One of those reasons was a lack of representation within the crime genre, particularly with detectives and sleuths. Strange created Jordan Jenner, a private investigator, who lives and works in Cardiff. Murder on the Rocks was written with the intention of shining light on Cardiff, and bringing Cardiff, and furthermore, Wales, into the crime genre.

Strange’s previous works, such as ‘Winter Smith: London Burning’, also explored LGBT themes, and featured socialite Winter Smith escaping a zombie apocalypse. ‘London’s Burning’ became an Amazon best-seller in LGBT fiction.

When Strange doesn’t write, he works in television. He also presents a radio show all about the paranormal. He has an enthusiasm for Britney Spears and cats.
