Found this short spoof "Inspector Morose" tale on Amazon Kindle unlimited (and currently free to download). The author's name's an obvious pseudonym but the writing's energetic and there's some real gems among the relentless puns and parody. Written almost entirely in dialogue it's more absurdist comedy then any kind of detective mystery, but with the background playing in your mind it manages to work very well. Playing spot the reference had me reading it twice through.

Probably not for the most uncritically woke, but practically every contentious pretension gets equally harpooned and I don't think the humour ever crosses the line. Worth a read, though after it the Daily Male (sic) never seems the same!

Sorry, just noticed I'd linked to the US site instead of the UK... here's the local book, but it's gone up to 99p now (still worth a read IMHO).
