Doctor Who: Death in the Stars

Doctor Who: Death in the Stars

A Melanie Bush Mystery


A stylish Doctor Who murder mystery novel featuring Mel Bush, written and read by Bonnie Langford.
When young Mel’s business partner, Sabalom Glitz embarks on yet another “get rich quick” scheme, it marks the start of an epic, death-defying murder-mystery in space.
After barely escaping the snares of a murderous galactic cult, Mel searches for fellow survivors in a nearby spaceship graveyard – while Glitz looks to fill his pockets. But the discovery of a spaceship with its crew in suspended animation, and incredible secrets on board, leaves the duo stranded with no way off.
Mel revives the crew – and then the murders start. Murders that cannot possibly have been committed by any of the crewmembers. In fact, there are only two realistic suspects – Glitz and Mel themselves…
Bonnie Langford, who plays Mel in the BBC TV series, reads her first ever novel.
