Murder by Drone: Biddy and Justin Series – Book 5
Murder by Drone is the fifth book in the exciting Biddy and Justin Series by Pamela Arnold. This mature but lively pair of Australian espionage agents are embroiled once again with arch ISIS enemy Suzette, who entices Biddy on horseback onto the desirable next-door property … and into a trap of attack by drone.
Despite a broken wrist and head scans, Biddy refuses to stay in hospital and enlists the usual intriguing characters for help. They uncover Suzette’s scheme to kill innocent South Australian Anzac Day crowds with drone swarms.
The German House described in this story is based on a century-old property that the author owned and took twelve years to restore, but it took only twenty minutes to be razed by the Ash Wednesday fire of 1983. As in the story, the author won both National Trust and State Heritage awards. Antiques were lost, but the horses were saved, as was the family dog. Badly singed, the author says of their dog, “We knew he was ours because he had one blue and one brown eye.”
Murder in Tusmore Park: Biddy and Justin Series – Book I
Murder in Tusmore Park is the first in the Biddy and Justin Series, the forerunner to the second book Pacific Incident 9-11-13. This novel has the same compelling characters and is a fascinating, well-plotted thriller with genuine suspense. Another page turner by Australian author Pamela M. Arnold!
Lively sixty-year-olds Biddy and Justin are embroiled in a series of homicides, two of which are committed in the park opposite Justin’s duplex. Due to Justin finding both bodies, the couple become police suspects.

A screenplay based on the first of the thriller series, “Murder in Tusmore Park”, has been written by noted film director and producer Jethro Heller. Unfortunately due to the Co-vid Virus progress on film production has yet to commence with backers and actors anxiously ‘waiting in the wings’!

ANVN and Detective Inspector Brien Schultz from Adelaide Crime, also seeks help from celebrated Australian yachtsman, Sir Tim Harvey, to uncover terrorists at sea, whom Biddy suspects of abducting boat people as fodder for body parts, and processing them aboard the Goliath, a giant fishing trawler fitted with huge freezers.
As one of the abductees is an American National, the U.S. Coast Guard is involved, providing use of a Black Hawk helicopter to track the Goliath, which escapes for concealment to an Indian ship demolition graveyard to continue its macabre butchery.

Frenzy in Frome Road: Book Four of the Biddy and Justin Series
Pamela Arnold has done it again: another fast-paced suspense thriller that slices through a multitude of dangers, always stays on track, and keeps readers intrigued.
Lively seniors Biddy and Justin, with no time to unpack after returning home from an overseas assignment, are abducted and whisked away in a unique custom-designed, bullet-proof Mercedes.
The action takes place between a luxurious South Australian hills estate called Landmark House and a Tokamak, an experimental machine that harnesses the energy of fusion, in Provence, France.
The story embraces a multitude of interesting tech items, including Abio, a robot dog, which Justin’s dog, a Japanese Chin named Puffer, considers it nothing more than a retarded cousin that does tricks with a ball. There’s also Toots, a Google driverless car, in which Biddy traps an assassin, and Oso is a beautiful and sexy humanoid that’s been enhanced with an extra sex app.
Biddy and Justin, expecting to enjoy a little R&R, are instead swept into action at the Adelaide Zoo, due to a terrorist threat. Going undercover, Biddy poses as an elderly blind woman accompanied by her seeing- eye dog, which in reality is an attack dog.
