TA Williams: Murder In Chianti

Today I’m joining the blog tour for Murder In Chianti. My review is written with thanks to Rachel Gilbey at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me on the tour and to the publisher for my copy of the book.


A brand new cozy crime series set in gorgeous Tuscany…It’s murder in paradise!

Murder in broad daylight…

When millionaire magnate, Rex Hunter is found with his head bashed in on the eighth hole of his prestigious golf and country club in beautiful Chianti, it’s a clear case of murder. Hunter was rich and successful and the envy of many, so retired DCI Dan Armstrong thinks the case will be a hole in one to solve….

A despised victim…

But as Dan and his trusty sidekick Oscar begin to dig deeper into Hunter’s lifestyle, they discover a man despised by many. A renowned womaniser, ruthless boss and heartless family man, it seems no one is particularly sorry to see Hunter dead. And the list of possible suspects is endless…

A murderer covering their tracks.

Dan is determined to catch this clever killer, but it seems every new lead brings another dead end. Will this be one case Dan and his canine companion won’t solve?

A gripping new murder mystery series by bestselling author T.A. Williams, perfect for fans of Lee Strauss and Beth Byers.


Murder In Chianti is the second book in the series featuring former police officer, Dan Armstrong and his beautiful labrador, Oscar. I’m so pleased to be back with them and I have been looking forward to their next adventure since I finished the previous book. I love that Dan cannot stay away from an active investigation and his enthusiasm for his work and his new life in Italy is almost infectious. TA Williams’ writing is so easy to read, yet it takes us to the wonderful Italian setting immediately and I felt as if I was there myself, right in the heart of the action. 

The victim in the murder investigation, Rex Hunter, was not a particularly popular person and this means there are a lot of suspects. The author builds a case for each one very well and I enjoyed trying to make my own guesses as the story went along.

As with all murder investigations, there are a number of secrets among the community and I was really intrigued as to what these would be. The author has plotted the story really well and I changed my mind about who had done what as the novel reached its ending. 

Although I know this author is more prolific as a women’s fiction author, I do hope he has more plans for Dan and Oscar as I definitely think they have more adventures to go on!

Murder In Chianti is available from Amazon.
