Death in Tallinn

By Allan Martin


Tallinn, March 1933

Estonia, a small country trying to survive - caught between the jaws of Germany and Russia.

And political crisis looms when a senior policeman is found impaled on the roof of a kiosk.

Chief Inspector Jüri Hallmets, former schoolteacher and veteran of Estonia’s struggle for independence, builds a team to investigate the crime. His political masters demand a quick and easy resolution to the case. But Hallmets has principles.

Two journalists are looking into the case too, but their curiosity could prove their own worst enemy. Their fates become entwined with Hallmets’ investigation.

And as Hallmets finds himself in a race against time, he uncovers a network of illegal activities.

After a bloody shoot-out, a plot unfolds which will threaten Estonia’s fragile democracy.

Praise for Death in Tallinn

“Allan Martin’s writing is a masterclass in crime fiction.” 

Marion Todd.

Allan Martin grabs you with the first sentence and doesn’t let go until the last page. Death in Tallinn is a tense thriller with compelling characters set against a fascinating, well-researched backdrop." 

Len Maynard, author of the DCI Jack Callum Mysteries and the Harry Beck thrillers.

“This atmospheric crime novel set on Islay gripped me from the start. Decades-old crimes cast long shadows.” 

Sarah Ward

“A mystery so redolent of its island setting that you practically smell the peat and whisky on the pages.” 

Douglas Skelton
