Quick Overview

Syrup Trap City is Penny Grubb’s 7th crime novel. Set in the Northern port of Hull, it features private investigator, Annie Raymond, her boss, the enigmatic Mrs Peters, and Detective Ayaan Ahmed who Annie last met in very trying circumstances in York (see Buried Deep and Tiger Blood).

The story opens as the year draws to a close and Hull looks forward to a momentous year. The wider landscape passes Annie by as the realisation dawns that this routine job is not all that it seems. As she is faced with an unexpected and unwelcome reminder from the past, she realises just how badly she has taken her eye off the ball.



Syrup Trap City by Penny Grubb is a crime novel featuring private investigator, Annie Raymond, and Detective Ayaan Ahmed.

Annie is dismissive of her current assignment. These everyday cases are routine to her these days. She takes time out to visit old acquaintances, at the ramshackle local firm that she worked for years ago. Whilst sharing gossip and coffee with Pat Thompson and Barbara Caldwell, she keeps half an eye on the surveillance she is being paid to do, but her attention focuses on potential betrayal from much nearer home. What is her boss, the enigmatic Mrs Peters, up to now?

Shadowing Mrs Peters is a far more tricky business, but while her attention is focused elsewhere, the apparently routine job takes a nasty turn. Annie has misinterpreted events badly and taken her eye off the ball. Suddenly, danger lurks round every corner and nothing is as it seems.
