Hello. Hola. Bienvenue. And welcome to our shiny new website. Behold the crispness of our new design. Regard the navigability of our pages. Marvel at the new layout of our menu buttons. And above all, crime fans, enjoy! Because, as ever, we have a wealth of exclusive author features for your delectation. Pulitzer Prize winner John Sandford has written a superb piece on how to create the perfect villain. Chris Carter introduces his forthcoming thriller, An Evil Mind. Read sample chapters of several terrifying novels. And if you like it here, why not spread the word?
In other news, it’s been a very busy month here at HQ. Not content with rebuilding the website, we’ve also launched our exciting newsletter, which will be delivering the latest news from the crime scene directly to your inbox once a month (or thereabouts). And digital activity aside, we’ve also been putting together plans for our party at The Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate next month. I can’t go into detail right now, but believe me, it’s going to be memorable. If you’re going to the festival, do stop by: 18th July, 530pm, in the big tent outside the Old Swan. Be there or be square.
Marcus and Lena are the envy of their friends.
Wealthy, attractive, successful. But when their daughter fails to return from a sleepover with a friend, cracks begin to emerge and tensions bubble over.
The new bestseller from the queen of crime fiction.
The home of crooks and villains, mobsters and terrorists, spies and private eyes; where the plots are twistier than a knotted noose and the pacing tighter than Marlon Brando’s braces.
