Canal Pushers

Johnson & Wilde Crime Mystery 1

Andy Griffee

Book 1 in the Johnson & Wilde crime mystery series, featuring ex journalist Jack Johnson, the enigmatic Nina Wilde, and a narrowboat with a top speed of 4 miles per hour…


Jack Johnson is newly divorced, recently made redundant and in search of a fresh start. But when a young boy he meets on the canals turns up drowned, trouble seems determined to follow him. With the encouragement of Jack’s unlikely companion, Nina, who’s come aboard his narrowboat, Jumping Jack Flash, to help him navigate the waterways of the Midlands, Jack is soon tangled up in a police investigation that doesn’t quite add up. Is there a serial killer stalking the towpaths? Jack’s got more pressing problems too: can a canal boat outrun an organised crime syndicate and a media manhunt?

Canal Pushers is the first thriller in an exciting new crime series set on Britain’s waterways.

– Mary Picken, Live and Deadly

“An intriguing mystery played out across the evocative setting of the British waterways. I was drawn in from the start and found Canal Pushers a thoroughly good read. I enjoyed it immensely.”
