Tour Details

WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY

This is my second mystery tour, and it was absolutely amazing. I came away with new favorite authors, wonderful memories and new friends who share my mystery addiction! 

- Lourdes F.

The tour was excellent, and the trio of ladies who led us are also excellent. Actually seeing where authors have located their stories makes reading the mysteries more enjoyable, adds another dimension to the story. 

- Kathy C.

You can't see it all on one or even two trips so having knowledgeable leaders and an overall theme provided focus and made the selection of sights and cultural experiences relevant. We saw sights and gained insights that you just don't get on the average sightseeing tour. There was not a single "ok, that's nice" moment. 

- Wayne B.

If you like to learn and have fun at the same time, take a Smithsonian tour.

Michael Jecks

Michael Jecks

Michael Jecks has been a professional crime writer for over 30 years and is the author of some 50 novels and two collections of short stories. His work encompasses his highly acclaimed Templar series of historical thrillers, the Vintener trilogy, his humorous Bloody Mary Tudor series, a new modern day crime series, and a spy story, Act of Vengeance - described by Lee Child as ‘an instant classic British spy novel’. His books are inspired by history and legends covering the moors where he lives, but his stories are grounded in real life and real people; what motivates them, and what makes them turn to violence. His novel Death Ship of Dartmouth (Headline, 2006) was short-listed for the Theakston’s Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award.

The founder of Medieval Murderers, he has served on the committees of the Crime Writers’ Association, Historical Writers’ Association and now The Detection Club, where he is the Honorary Secretary. He has taught writing at Swanwick Writers’ Summer School, at the Evesham Festival, and tutored for the Royal Literary Fund at Exeter University. 

An international speaker, he has worked with the British Council in Bogota and at festivals throughout Europe and all over the United States. His work has been celebrated by Visconti and Conway Stewart pens. In 2014 he was honoured as the International Guest of Honour at the Bloody Words festival in Toronto, and as Grand Master of the first parade in the New Orleans Mardi Gras.
