DAY OF THE DEAD

MARK ROBERTS

Publication Date: 4th May 2017

Price: £20

A vigilante killer spreads terror in Merseyside in the third gripping thriller starring Liverpool DCI Eve Clay.

“A genuinely innovative crime writer with a taste for the macabre and unexpected.” DAILY MAIL

“Brilliant storytelling” JIMMY MCGOVERN

“Dark, gripping and believable. Roberts’ intimate knowledge of Liverpool makes the city into a sinister character of itself.” GRAHAM MASTERTON

Vindici is a hero to many. He is also the nation’s most dangerous criminal…

The man who calls himself Vindici broke out of prison last year. Now he’s filmed himself torturing and killing paedophiles in Liverpool’s affluent suburbs. Half the city are celebrating: the streets are safer for their children. But for DCI Eve Clay and her team at the Merseyside Police, it’s a nightmare. Their job is to solve the crimes and lock up the killer – hard enough without being despised by the public they are trying to protect.

And now, just when they think they’ve cracked the case, they receive a photo of Vindici, at a Day of the Dead parade in Mexico. So if Vindici is 5,000 miles away, who are they hunting in Liverpool? DCI Eve Clay must draw on all her cunning to unmask a killer who is somehow always one step ahead…

Watch you  Burn by Ka Richardson 

Book blurb

Watch You Burn blurb

Someone is breaking into Fire Investigator, Edina Blaze’s, home and leaving deadly messages. When Glen Peacock is burned alive, she has to put her own problems aside and attend the location with Crime Scene Manager, Kevin Lang. 

As the body count rises, Edina’s sister Heather becomes involved. Is it her setting these gruesome fires? Or is she a target too? 

Kevin has seen it all in his years on the force, but when a young girl is found burnt to dead, even he is shocked. 

Who is taking pleasure in watching people burn? Why are they doing it? And will they be caught? 

DI Alistair McKay and the team from North East Police have to work quickly to stop the killer, before they all end up in flames. 

My review 

This is my first in the series and the first ever by KA Richardson.  It definitely won’t be the last.
One of my big likes about this book is it isn’t like most thriller  novels which focus more on Police and those procedures.  Watch you Burn deals with more the fire department and what to expext.

Edina an interesting character is a fire investigator after an injury that left her unable to serve in the way she trained.  She is being stalked and there is something more sinister than just a stalker.  Her very life is in danger as is that of her younger sister Heather.  

Heather is bullied a lot at high school but assumed when she entered college that things would be different.   Of course the bullying continued with a greater urgency as the mean pranks for our of hand.

The story really features her and the coven which is 3 girls that are all friends and are different from others.  The term coven while i am not a fan of i do like what it is supposed to entail.  

This is a fiery book where the bullies are being killed and Simone is spying on them.  In most cases the book is not a comfortable read but is very well written from the three varying points of view.

It is very unique book and I am waiting to see what happens next to our characters.   What a great job KA Richardson has done for this novel.

Author Biography

Author Bio:

My name is Kerry-Ann Richardson (generally known as Kerry) and I write as KA Richardson. I started writing the North East Police series in 2010 when I was working towards my MA Creative Writing – I used the first 15000 words of With Deadly Intent as my dissertation. I passed my MA in 2011 and kept on writing. This all came about from working as a Crime Scene Investigator – I’d always written but when I was a CSI I went to see a psychic, Anthony, and he wanted to know why I wasn’t writing. He reminded me that it was my passion and said he could see me signing in Waterstones in 5 years. That was 5.5 years before my first ever signing in Waterstones so he wasn’t far wrong! 

I did the normal things writers do when their book is ready to go out into the world – submitted to agents etc. I got a few nice personal responses back – still saying no but being constructive and polite about it. I approached Darren Laws from Caffeine Nights whilst at a crime festival and he asked to see my work. He agreed to publish With Deadly Intent from there, and once that was out I approached Bloodhound Books as wanted to know if there was any other interest in my novels. Bloodhound came back within 24 hours and offered me a 3 book deal!  And I’ve since signed an additional 3 book deal with them which covers the series up to and including book 7!

Dead souls by Angela marsons 

As the 6th installment in this wonderful series Angela Marsons has made a name for herself as one of the top authors in her chosen genre.

This book deals with one of my all time favourite female leads in Kim Stone.  She is a no nonsense type lady who is one of the most capable detectives I have read about.  It makes me glad that she isn’t a stereotypical lead and that she can be seen as a person and not just a character. 

What I really like about this book is it deals with some difficult families.

Angela marsons has am ability to capture your attention and to keep you guessing the entire time.  I am very pleased to have been part of the journey for all of these books as all of them are top of the line books.

My review

Jake Boulder a man Who has a heart of gold and fists of thunder.   Who wouldn’t want to have Jake on your team.  He is a fighter who does what is right with a code of honour not seen often.

This book really hot the mark and is not a typical thriller as it had so much action packed into its pages.  It also has a lot of morals that are shown and of course a number that are broken.

As a former martial artist I see Jake as a anti hero.  He isn’t averse to breaking the law or even using violence to suit his purposes however he has a sense of honour and never goes overboard with the violence preferring to end the fight by the quickest route.

The story was too notch and is what I have come to expect from this author.  He has a skill at making his characyers likeable as well as capable.  

This book had just what I needed at the time a book that had action but also had a lot of crime solving in it as well.  I am looking forward to more of Jake Boulder and what happens next.

The Detriment cover reveal David Vidicette 

Welcome to the official cover reveal for The Detriment the second book in the series that all started with The Theseus Paradox 

COVER REVEAL FOR THE DETRIMENT: 

A COMPELLING DETECTIVE THRILLER BASED ON TRUE EVENTS
Today, crime fighter turned crime writer, David Videcette, is very excited to share with us the cover reveal for his second thriller, The Detriment.

David says: “After twenty years in the police, I’m used to unmasking criminals, but today I’m delighted to reveal the cover of The Detriment for the very first time.” 

“A detective thriller, it follows on from The Theseus Paradox, my first novel, which was set against the backdrop of the 7/7 London attacks.”

“This second outing for Detective Jake Flannagan sees him sailing close to the wind as he struggles to thwart a nightclub bomb plot and a blazing Jeep attack on an airport. I use my police knowledge in my books, and The Detriment is once again based on true events and actual criminal investigations.”

Here are David’s top five tips for creating a cover:  

Remember that we all judge a book by its cover, even if we say we don’t! Give the design as much forethought as you would your writing.

Kickstart the process by throwing together a ‘mood board’ of images and colours which appeal – and even those which don’t!

Design should always reflect your book’s content, otherwise it’s just decoration.

Have an outline idea of what you’d like, but remain flexible.

Engage with the professionals, because you’ll need their design expertise to make your book look as good as it can.
The Detriment launches on 29th June, but you can pre-order it on Kindle today.

Find out more about David Videcette and his books based on true events here, or chat to David on Facebook or Twitter.

And a special treat a video.
