Gavin Holder Series (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: In the dark of the parking lot I couldn't possibly have seen his eyes, but in my memory or my imagination I saw them as dark pits of rage and madness. He came up swinging, or so I thought. I never felt the knife, it slid across my body so easy it felt like nothing more than a regular punch.

When a motel stakeout turns into a gun battle, Special Agent Gavin Holder stumbles across a vast and deadly gang-related conspiracy, including a secret stockpile of stolen money, drugs and jewels.

The search for the treasure hoard leads Holder into a hunt for his own past, a woman who may hold the key to the missing millions – and to Holder’s own darkest secrets.

As his past closes in on him, Holder must find a way to take down the criminal gang, find the missing money, save the woman he loves... and not get caught. Or has he underestimated the magnitude of what he’s up against?

A suspenseful crime thriller in the classic noir tradition.

Cry From The Grave A Thrilling Psychological Crime Mystery (Harry Briscombe Book 1)

True Grit-Lit To Keep You In Suspense


After a heartbreaking tragedy six years ago, Hannah Walker is struggling to pick up the pieces of her life – until a chance discovery tips her whole world upside down again.
Now her fragile existence is threatened by the unfolding mystery that seems to have everyone, including the police, clawing to understand it. But this time she won't give up until the truth surrounding her daughter is revealed.
Natasha Campbell’s unhappy childhood has haunted her throughout her life. Her marriage to Adam was the one good decision she made, but now, even that is crumbling around her – and she will do whatever it takes to keep him.
But secrets can’t stay buried forever ... and when they’re exposed, the truth can be devastating.
Three people drawn together by a crime; three lives torn apart by the chilling consequences. What is the mystery that haunts them all?
–A psychological crime novel that you won’t be able to put down.
–If you love Rachel Abbott, Clare Mackintosh and Rosamund Lupton you’ll love this book.

Questions to the Author


What inspired the characters of Hannah and Natasha and how did the plot idea come to you?
– Originally the novel was more of a romance believe it or not! But it was so strange … as the novel took off, Natasha’s personality seemed to take over and I had a real struggle keeping her in her place! The novel got darker but I couldn’t quite ditch the romance entirely … as you will see when you read it! I think every mother could relate to Hannah’s situation and everyone I hope, will be rooting for her!

Your detectives seem to have developed a following. Will you do another book in the series?
I hadn't originally planned it as a series, but people really seemed to take to the detectives, Harry and DCI Murray, and I kept being asked if I was doing a follow up. My second book The Jagged Line has just come out and Harry’s story emerges with more prominence in this one. I love the police characters although of course my books aren’t strongly police procedural. They’re more psychological drama, about people (who could perhaps be any one of us), with dilemmas. What would you do if this suddenly happened? How would you react if that happened? That’s the idea that always grabs me – the thought of the extraordinary happening to the ordinary!

Any More Books on the way?
Well, as I say, The Jagged Line (the 2nd in the series) has just come out and is available now on Amazon, and my 3rd novel will be coming out within the next week or two, I hope. It’s a stand-alone romantic suspense called Shadow Watcher and I had it floating around in my head for ages! It’s a bit different to my first two novels. Still a psychological suspense but with a stronger romance thread, and every bit as enthralling I hope.

When his freedom means the loss of hers … can anyone win?

Fitzwilliam Darcy has avoided the entrapments of dozens of desperate maidens seeking a wealthy husband … until the Netherfield Ball. He could lose himself in her fine eyes, but there's just one problem: She doesn't want him.

Elizabeth Bennet seeks a brief respite from the crowded ballroom only to find herself wrapped in the arms of the one man she despises — Mr. Darcy.

When Darcy's enemy is shot to death, he must choose between Elizabeth's freedom and his own honor. To complicate matters further, Elizabeth is not one to stand idly by when her future is on the line.
