Alan M.A. Friedmann

The home of Julia Flowers’ Casebooks

Let it be said that this is a tale that kept me glued. 

Peter J Earle:

Read the reviews

The first of Julia Flowers’ Casebooks, The Sorrowful Woman, has just been published.

Alan Friedmann’s writing is so unique that it defines an altogether new genre - Tartan Blanc. Suspenseful, but not heavy. Scottish, but not parochial.

Introducing a new type of heroine, Julia Flowers, antiques sleuth,  and the enigmatic Inspector Bland.

Tartan Blanc has arrived!

Sarah Ward:

There is a strong Scottish sense of place and The Sorrowful Woman is an enjoyable start to what I’m sure will be a great new series.

The Puzzle Doctor:

This isn’t a normal cosy. The plot trundles along nicely. The killer is hard to spot and the story is complex and ticks the usual mystery boxes.”

The Sorrowful Woman is available on

The paperback can be bought here or from Amazon.
