Faceless blurb

After surviving a vicious knife attack, which left her husband dead, DI Rosalind Kray returns to work and is handed a serial killer investigation.

This killer is different, he doesn’t just want to take the lives of his victims, he wants to obliterate their very existence. The murders appear random but the killer selects his quarry with meticulous care.

While fighting her superiors Kray must conquer her own demons, which are tearing her apart.

Kray has the ability to think like a killer and her skills lead to a series of horrifying revelations that turn the case on its head. She believes she is getting close, then her world comes crashing down with devastating consequences.

Will Kray find the murderer and escape with her own life in tact?

The truth is closer than she could have ever imagined…

Author Bio:

Rob is married to Karen with two grown up daughters. He is originally from South Wales and after moving around with work settled in North Lincolnshire where he’s spent the last twenty-two years.

Like all good welsh valley boys Rob worked for the National Coal Board after leaving school at sixteen and went to University at the tender age of twenty-three when the pit closures began to bite. Since then he’s worked in a variety of manufacturing and consulting roles both in the UK and abroad

It took Rob twenty-four years to write his first book. He only became serious about writing it when his dad got cancer. It was an aggressive illness and Rob gave up work for three months to look after him and his mum. Writing Those That Remain became his coping mechanism. After he wrote the book his family encouraged him to continue, so not being one for half measures, Rob got himself made redundant, went self-employed so he could devote more time to writing and four years later the Mechanic Trilogy is the result.

When he is not writing, Rob is a frustrated chef with a liking for beer and prosecco, and is known for occasional outbreaks of dancing.

Rob published the Mechanic Trilogy with Bloodhound Books in 2017 and will be releasing three new books during 2018. These are titled: Faceless, This Little Piggy and Suspended Retribution.

Guest Post

When Faceless kicked in, I just hung on for the ride. Writing Faceless was an exhilarating experience. For more years than I care to remember my writing existence had been consumed with the Mechanic Trilogy and the exploits of Lucas, Harper and Co. When I completed the trilogy, those characters were gone and their voices left me. It was a bizarre feeling. I remember this was a scary time, because I thought I would never write anything again. It was very much uncharted territory for me. The silence drove me nuts while I, in turn, drove my wife up the wall – seemed only fair. Then when Jason’s voice found me, when I was sat having dinner in the Hilton Hotel in Blackpool, I had goose bumps. My heart was racing and I couldn’t get his words down fast enough. I realised immediately this was a very different character to what I was used to, and when it became clear what he was all about I thought – Holy shit this guy is way off the scale! As a writer, it was like being let off the leash. The storyline tumbled out of me and a new character emerged, DI Rosalind Kray. Writing Faceless was an exhilarating experience.

As a writer, it was like being let off the leash. The storyline tumbled out of me and a new character emerged, DI Rosalind Kray. I love writing about Roz, she is a delight to have around. She is damaged in so many ways, both physically and emotionally, and yet has the strength and skill to succeed when all around her are drowning. Her determination and sharp wit keeps her going when the corporate failings of the police force threaten to overwhelm her. She is a tough woman with a vulnerability that bites her in the arse when she least expects it. That’s what makes her so fascinating and her character now features in two further books.

It was very much uncharted territory for me. The silence drove me nuts while I, in turn, drove my wife up the wall – seemed only fair. Then when Jason’s voice found me, when I was sat having dinner in the Hilton Hotel in Blackpool, I had goose bumps. My heart was racing and I couldn’t get his words down fast enough. I realised immediately this was a very different character to what I was used to, and when it became clear what he was all about I thought – Holy shit this guy is way off the scale! As a writer, it was like being let off the leash. The storyline tumbled out of me and a new character emerged, DI Rosalind Kray. Writing Faceless was an exhilarating experience. For more years than I care to remember my writing existence had been consumed with the Mechanic Trilogy and the exploits of Lucas, Harper and Co. When I completed the trilogy, those characters were gone and their voices left me. It was a bizarre feeling. I remember this was a scary time, because I thought I would never write anything again.

As a writer, it was like being let off the leash. The storyline tumbled out of me and a new character emerged, DI Rosalind Kray. I love writing about Roz, she is a delight to have around. She is damaged in so many ways, both physically and emotionally, and yet has the strength and skill to succeed when all around her are drowning. Her determination and sharp wit keeps her going when the corporate failings of the police force threaten to overwhelm her. She is a tough woman with a vulnerability that bites her in the arse when she least expects it. That’s what makes her so fascinating and her character now features in two further books.

I have been asked by my BetaReaders if there will be a love interest for Roz in the future? All I can say is it would need to be a special sort of man to win her over – but then who knows?
