The Killing Habit is the fifteenth Tom Thorne novel and begins with Thorne being handed the case of a notorious killer of domestic cats.

My debut novel, Missing Pieces, is the story of the Sadler family and how they cope – or fail to – following the tragic death of three-year-old Phoebe.

It’s a bit of a heartbreaker, but I hope it’s healing, too. Continue Reading

Top 5 Books of the Year 2018 (so far)

My latest book is The Photographer. It’s the seventh in my Winter & Narey series but can be read as a standalone. Narey is on the trail of a violent rapist who has evaded conviction. While searching his home, she finds hidden photographs of hundreds of women, all taken on the streets of Glasgow without their knowledge. She herself becomes the victim of misogynistic online trolls as a men’s movement rallies behind the rapist. Continue Reading

Random – Craig Robertson (Narey & Winter Book 1)

There seems to be neither rhyme nor reason behind the killings; no kind of pattern or motive; an entirely different method of murder each time, and nothing that connects the victims except for the fact that the little fingers of their right hands have been severed.
