Books by P.G. Bell

The UK cover of The Beanstalk Murder. The title appears in red text over the image of a giant beanstalk, twisting up to the sky from rolling countryside far below. Forests and cottages are visible around it. The beanstalk partly obscures the body of a giant wearing 18th century gentleman's attire. Hanging from the beanstalk are two young girls, roughly 12 years of age. The one on the left is blonde and wears a blue dress. The one on the right has black hair and wears a yellow dress.
