DANCING ON THE GRAVE: new standalone crime thriller, set in the English Lake District, out July 1st
I’m very excited to be able to tell you that my new standalone crime thriller will be out very soon! DANCING ON THE GRAVE features a strong female central character in Crime Scene Investigator, Grace McColl. It also introduces young newcomer Detective Constable Nick Weston. Together, they must track down a sniper with a deadly .50 calibre rifle who is terrorising the inhabitants of this peaceful rural location.

DANCING ON THE GRAVE is available now on preorder in print, in epub and in Kindle.
In one of the most beautiful corners of England
something very ugly is about to take place.
A sniper with a mission…
a young cop with nothing to lose…
a CSI with everything to prove…
a teenage girl with a terrifying obsession…
There’s a killer on the loose in the Lake District, and the calm of an English summer is shattered.
For newly qualified Crime Scene Investigator, Grace McColl, it’s both the start of a nightmare and the chance to prove herself after a mistake that cost a life.
For Detective Constable Nick Weston, recently transferred from London, it’s an opportunity to recover his nerve after a disastrous undercover operation left him for dead.
And for a lonely, loveless teenage girl, Edith, it’s the start of a twisted fantasy—one she never dreamed might come true.
This is not the first outing for Grace McColl. She was the main character in a short story called ‘Tell Me’ I wrote a few years ago for a Crime Writers’ Association anthology, and it also appeared in THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF BEST BRITISH MYSTERIES.
