One Step Ahead – crime thriller – Available now!Cover FINAL

Detective Superintendent Brandt has found the perfect murderer.
And he will use his unparalleled knowledge of how to escape detection to kill; again and again, because the people of Britain need awakening from their slumber of indifference, having been desensitised by the violence that is gripping the country. Brandt’s going to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end when you hear footsteps behind you. He’s going to make you look twice at that stranger walking towards you.

He’s going to make you afraid for your own safety and those around you.

Or he’s going to kill you.

But DCI Stella Johnson believes she can catch him. There is no such thing as a perfect murderer; everyone makes mistakes. The crime scenes may be lacking evidence, but each one tells its own story.
Aided by her young protege PC McNeil, and with their personal chemistry growing as fast as their working relationship, can she separate the murders’ facts from Brandt’s fiction to uncover the person behind these killings?
One Step Ahead takes the classic cat and mouse tale and flips it on its head. The intrigue behind Brandt’s dramatic descent into criminality, and Johnson’s determination to change the game, has captivated readers with its fascinating characters and compelling plot.

Spoiler alert – the following is for those who have already read the first book in the Gamekeeper Turned Poacher Series: One Step Ahead. 

Following on immediately from the explosive events in Nottingham that ended the first book, we re-join DCI Stella Johnson, trying to save the man she loves; her desperation allowing the person responsible to escape.
With the serial killer now on the run and our female protagonist desperate to get out of hospital to join the hunt, we live through her agony as she tries to come to terms with what has happened, along with her own sense of guilt.
Despite now knowing the identity of the man they are chasing, the police investigation is unable to unearth his whereabouts. With DSI Potter determined to keep Johnson away from the case, she finds herself faced with a simple choice: allow her nemesis to slip through their fingers or go it alone and put herself in harm’s way once more.
Follow Johnson and Brandt in the continuation of this gripping tale of cat and mouse. Unable to move on from the past, and with their fates seemingly inexorably intertwined, how will they react when they realise they must come face-to-face again?

Spoiler alert – the following is for those who have already read the two previous books in the Gamekeeper Turned Poacher series.

Brandt and Johnson are both trying to rebuild their lives following the events of Hide And Seek. What neither of them realise is that the actions of another will bring them together one final time.

Jack, to all intents and purposes a normal and promising young man, has always had an unhealthy pre-occupation with death. Brandt’s actions in his hometown of Canterbury not only inspires him to finally kill, but to recreate his idol’s attacks. When Jack’s actions force Johnson out of her self-imposed exile, a lack of evidence and pressure from a disgruntled DI Fisher causes her to consider assistance from the most unlikely of sources.

Will Brandt’s search for redemption succeed or can Johnson somehow kill two birds with one stone and not only find the cause of the new threat in Nottingham but also finally ensnare her nemesis?

Fans of the original two books will not want to miss out on this epic conclusion.

Never Mind, Just Rewind. Available now!

Alex was exactly this sort of person.

He thought he was happy enough, married to an attractive but conservative woman, going each day to safe but unrewarding job, and occasionally going to the pub with his much more successful mate from school.

That was until he found the unwanted Christmas present
from his wife possessed a unique and phenomenal feature. The watch, which he had resented for looking nothing like the one he’d requested, allowed him to turn back time by a minute. One minute. No more, no less.

Alex sets about utilising it to his advantage by manipulating circumstances at both work and home. But he soon finds his ambitions are not just limited by the very specific and short amount of time the power affords him. Without being able to see the longer term consequences of his actions, he increasingly finds himself in situations where he is out of his depth.

Join Alex in his race against time to prevent him ruining his life.
