I was stunned to check Twitter today and see that ABSENCE OF LIGHT: Charlie Fox #11 was included on a list of Top International Thrillers led by powerful, ambitious women, as put together by author and journalist, Holly Watt. Holly is the author of TO THE LIONS, as well as writing for all the top newspapers in the UK. Her choices are appearing on the CrimeReads site, as well as being reposted by Marshal Zeringue on Campaign For The American Reader.

Who wouldn’t be over the moon to have their main protagonist mentioned alongside the likes of Luke Jennings’ Villanelle and Stieg Larsson’s Lisabeth Salander?
