  • Blotto, Twinks and the Ex-King s Daughter: Blotto, Twinks.
  • Blotto, Twinks and the Bootlegger s Moll: Blotto, Twinks.



2017 is a significant year in my writing career. Three books will be published – Blotto, Twinks and the Stars of the Silver Screen, Seriously Funny... and Other Oxymorons and a new Fethering, The Liar in the Library. The middle one, Seriously Funny..., will be my 100th publication. Which is some kind of achievement... although, as I always say, if the first one had sold better, I wouldn’t have needed to write so many (but for the fact that I have such fun writing them).

Right, the complete inventory of the Brett oeuvre... Here goes... and to get a larger image, just click on the relevant book jacket.

If you couldn't tell from the title alone, this novel is extremely hysterical! From the characters to the locations to the murder mystery, itself, Mr. Brett has done a fantastic job of writing a story that will keep you guessing until the end, as well as bringing back a type of Miss Marple that the world has been missing for a long, long time.

Her two children, Lady Honoria who is called Twinks by the family and, Devereux Lyminster, who is called Blotto, are the main characters in this strange crime. Twinks is all brains. Although everyone finds her stunningly beautiful, she has no use for looks. She only wants to show the fact that her intellectual skills outweigh everyone else's...especially her brother's. Blotto is a nice man who is equally lovely to look at and a great hunter, but his brain doesn't exactly work well and the words that come out of his mouth (like hoopee doopee) are irresistibly moronic and charming at the same time.

When the body of a Captain is found poisoned in the library, Twinks takes it upon herself to get pictures and search for clues before the bumbling cops arrive. She and her brother have to comb through the guests in order to find out who killed the Captain. Was he a spy? He certainly worked for the ex-King of Mitteleuropia who is staying at the Towers along with his two suspicious guards, or goons, that surround him at all times. Also with the ex-King is his lovely child, the ex-Princess of Mitteleuropia who is on the hunt for a husband - and she has her eye on Blotto for that particular job.


Blotto, Twinks (or Blotto & Twinks) is a series of historical whodunnit mystery novels by British author Simon Brett . Set during Edwardian Times, “Blotto” is handsome and not very bright, while his beautiful sister “Twinks” has a much better head on her shoulders. The siblings are related to royalty. The series is light-hearted and humourous in nature.

Simon Brett began his Blotto, Twinks series in 2008 with the novel Blotto, Twinks and the Ex-King’s Daughter . The reason for the comma in the title is because all of the book titles begin with “Blotto, Twinks and the…”. The series is currently ongoing. Below is a list of Simon Brett’s Blotto & Twinks books in order of when they were originally published (which is the same as their chronological order):
