When a circus elephant goes missing on Detective Inspector Crombie’s watch, he immediately thinks of Celtic Cousins Wren and Rhyllann, who have to his mind made a career out of being the collective bane of his existence. And his instincts are correct: the cousins HAVE been up to something–but when Crombie finds out what it is and why, he runs into resistance not only from his immediate superiors, but also from the corridors of power in Whitehall itself.

Described by one reviewer as a “Masterful British Thriller” this is the third and shortest of the Celtic Cousins Adventures, and contains adult humour and some strong language. Especially when an unsuspecting Rhyllann discovers what’s lurking in his bathroom!

An Explosive Time starts with a fatal explosion; the action comes thick and fast, and Crombie will need all his wits about him to prevent his world – and London town – going supernova.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

If you liked the previous Hughes stories, you’ll love the latest installment. A truly explosive narrative packed with witty banter, and some of the most unusual facts to ever inhabit a police file.


AN EXPLOSIVE TIME has all the elements that could make a great movie: engaging main characters who play off each other so well, involved in a gritty, complex plot. AN EXPLOSIVE TIME now sits on the top shelf of my Kindle bookcase.


I really enjoyed it and was gripped from the first sentence and I loved the fact that there was a lot of humor chucked in for good measure. This was the first novel that I have read by this author – but it definitely won’t be the last!


I recently read another book by this author – A Ripple in Time and absolutely loved it so I was keen to see if this book was as good. Well I’m happy to say Julia Hughes has only gone and done it again and created a fast-paced, witty, character driven tale that had me enthralled from the first page. I am definitely going to be adding Julia Hughes to my list of favorite authors


Ms Hughes makes every word tell. She is an engaging storyteller, and has a way of putting the reader right there in the scene with her characters via vivid sensory details–one can almost smell the fish and chips–and down-to-earth dialogue. I highly recommend AN EXPLOSIVE TIME (and its series mates).
