Fragile Cord introduced Salford detectives Moreton and Coupland as they unravel the cause behind a young woman’s murder-suicide. I am currently working on the second ebook in the series which continues with Moreton and Coupland and introduces DCI Stuart Mallender, a clean-cut career cop with a shady past. This story begins with a drive by shooting and follows the knock on effect of repercussions as they ripple throughout the local community.
I enjoy writing about forensic details during each investigation but this also got me thinking about solving crime from another perspective – and so Truth Lies Waiting -and our anti-hero Davy Johnson was born!
Davy is the main character in my Edinburgh based series focussing on a young man and his cronies as they take on the establishment and solve local crimes where blind eyes have been turned. There’s a real David V Goliath feel to this series as Davy tackles police corruption and discovers just how long someone can hold a grudge. Writing from Davy’s perspective frees me from traditional police procedural protocols and allows me to use more creative methods to trace, interrogate and eliminate suspects from his investigations…I’d love to know what you think of Davy and his sidekicks as I shall be starting the second book in this series shortly and your feedback would be great!
